Jesuit School of Theology

“True mercy, the mercy God gives to us and teaches us, demands justice…”

(The Church of Mercy, 107) 

-Pope Francis

Preparation for Every Spiritual Path in Life

The Ignatian tradition of spirituality and discernment permeates every aspect of our institution.  With an abundance of opportunities to exercise and reflect on real-world pastoral applications, students practice what they learn in class.  Each student may participate in daily liturgy, regular spiritual direction, retreats, many offerings in Ignatian spirituality, and other opportunities for spiritual growth.  Faithful to the Catholic tradition, distinguished faculty teach students to think critically about theology and how to live a faith that does justice in service of the Church and the world.  Watch the stories of our current students and alumni below:
