Jesuit Community at SJU

As members of the founding society of Saint Joseph’s University, the Jesuit priests who work and reside on our campus are integral to the daily life of the University, advancement of our mission and preservation of our history.

As administrators, professors, Mass celebrants and spiritual mentors, there are numerous Jesuits actively serving our students, faculty, staff, alumni and families. Those who are retired often assist local parishes on weekends or serve as chaplains at convents and retreat houses in local communities. A number are ministers of the Sacrament of Reconciliation for the steady stream of those who come to Loyola Center for confession.
