Provincial's Musings

I am very happy to share my thoughts about the alumni/ae, their role and contributions in this first Karnataka Province Digital Newsletter. The success of every Jesuit institution is who our students become. Our alumni/ae are men and women for and with others, who having been transformed themselves, will in turn transform the world. They are the face of our institutions and our vision in the larger society. They are our goodwill ambassadors of reconciliation and justice in the world outside.

Who we are

The Society of Jesus is a world-wide organization with Headquarters in Rome where the highest authority called the Superior General resides and guides the world-wide operations of nearly 16,000 Jesuits spread out in about 112 countries. These 16,000 Jesuits are grouped into smaller administrative units corresponding to different geographical locations called "Provinces" presided over by Superiors appointed by the superior General.
