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.

At the moment, we are united for part 2 of our General Congregation 2021-2022. We will keep you updated on the GC in our blog.
