Ignatian Organizations

Ignatian spirituality emphasizes active participation in God’s work in the world. These are some of the organizations inspired by this Ignatian mission.

A U.S. Ignatian organization is not listed as a Jesuit work in the Catalog of the Provinces of the Society of Jesus in the United States of America, but which by its self-definition aligns itself with one or more core aspects of Ignatian spirituality.
