Welcome to Congregatio Jesu

We are the Congregatio Jesu, a congregation of women religious sisters founded by an Englishwoman, Mary Ward, in 1609. Today, inspired by her vision, we live and work worldwide as companions of Jesus in mission.

Today we keep the memory of Mary Ward’s first step out of Liège on the pilgrim path across the Alps for her first visit to Rome on 21 October 1621. She undertook this journey to petition the Pope for approval of her hoped-for new congregation. You can read more about this important and historic ...journey in an article written by Sr. Ursula Dirmeier of the Middle European Province on our website www.congregatiojesu.org. And especially today, 400 years after such a significant event, we want to be united by praying “Venerable Mary Ward pray for us and give us your spirit”
