SOCIETY OF JESUS
Our sponsoring body, the Society of Jesus (the Jesuits), is a religious order of the Roman Catholic Church with around 16,000 members spread throughout the world and is the sponsoring body of the two Wah Yan Colleges. In Hong Kong, there are 16 Jesuits serving at two Wah Yan Colleges, Ricci Hall of University of Hong Kong and Xavier House at Cheung Chau.
“The Jesuits are continuing the mission of Jesus Christ to preach, teach, heal, and reconcile.
We ponder and interpret what God is saying in our hearts and we hope that finding God in all things we may with all our strength proclaim His glory. We are ready to follow God under even the most difficult circumstances, to enter into and engage in dialogue with those of other faiths, cultures and value systems, and to stand in the front lines in the pursuit of justice and peace, bringing the message of the gospel that all men are yearning for deep in their hearts.”
