Jesuit parishes share a distinct identity, stemming from the Jesuit “way of proceeding” and guided by the spirituality of St. Ignatius. Fr. Pedro Arrupe, SJ, 28th Superior General of the Society of Jesus, stressed that a Jesuit parish “should be a center where the Word of God is preached and inspires deep probing; where there is a sense of openness to local social, economic, and cultural problems.”
