Our Mission

Spirituality

Following a rich tradition in spiritual ministries, the Jesuits in the region run spirituality centres, helping individuals and groups in their spiritual growth and development.

Parish

The Jesuits have been administering the Church of St. Ignatius in Singapore, and the Church of St. Francis Xavier in Petaling Jaya, ever since they started in 1961.

School

While Jesuits do not operate their own schools in the MAS region, Jesuits work as educators and administrators in St Joseph’s Private Secondary School in Kuching.

Vocation

How do I know God is calling me to be a Jesuit?

The Lord calls each of us differently to different vocations. Therefore, there is no single, straightforward answer to your question. Did you have a profound spiritual experience? Do you feel drawn to the priesthood or religious life? Do you have the longing to do more for God and the Church? Do you question whether your current state of life is for you and believe that there is more to life? These are examples of subtle signs that indicate you may have a calling. However, if you are serious about knowing and doing God’s will, and wish for a more definitive answer, then you should contact us immediately and let us help you in your discernment.
