What We Do
Pastoral & Parish Ministries

The Society of Jesus has more than 70 parishes throughout the United States and Canada. Twelve of these are in seven states throughout the Midwest. Whether sharing Ignatian spirituality with college students at St. Mary Student Parish & Newman Center at the University of Michigan, providing practical and spiritual care for people experiencing homelessness in downtown Detroit, challenging young minds at parish grade schools, or accompanying generations of Lakota-Catholic parishioners on the Rosebud and Pine Ridge Indian Reservations in South Dakota, we seek to help all those we encounter find God in all things.
