What We Do
The New York Province currently has responsibility for works in New York state, northern New Jersey, and in the Federated States of Micronesia, the Republic of Palau and the Territory of Guam.
New York Province Jesuits conduct 2 colleges, 2 universities, 9 high schools (two of which are in Micronesia), several parishes, 3 retreat houses and the Jesuit Martyrs Shrine in Auriesville, NY. Three middle schools are part of the national NativityMiguel Network serving minority populations in many major cities, and Cristo Rey New York High School is in Harlem. The Province is a primary sponsor of Centro Altagracia de Fe y Justicia in northern Manhattan and endorses the work of EPNE, a mobile pastoral leadership training program for the Hispanic community.
There are two residences for Jesuit seminarians. The Novitiate for the Maryland, New England and New York Provinces is in Syracuse, NY. Ciszek Hall for college and graduate students from the provinces in the U.S. and elsewhere is in the Bronx. Murray-Weigel Hall for infirm and elderly Jesuits is adjacent to Fordham University.
Jesuits of the New York Province also serve in a wide array of fields throughout the United States and the world - in architecture, law, hospital, prison and detention center chaplaincies, medical ethics, journalism, film, medicine, and more. As with all Jesuits, we are open to whatever mission we discern to be for the greater glory of God.
All of our work is inspired by our Founder, St. Ignatius Loyola, who invites us to find God in all things.
