Campus Ministry’s primary concern is to prepare each young man for life, leading him to become a faith-filled and value-centered person, within the model of Jesus Christ, centered in our Roman Catholic heritage, and in the tradition of Ignatius of Loyola. All of the religious activities at Jesuit are designed to respect each person’s religious tradition.

Campus Ministry dedicates itself to the task of bringing out in each person those spiritual gifts that lead people towards deeper love of self, others, and God in the building of God’s Kingdom.

Ignatian Spirituality:

  • Finding God in all things
  • Listening with a discerning heart
  • Living for “the Greater Glory of God”

Campus Ministry Team

The Campus Ministry Team, along with Christian Service and Theology, helps facilitate the Spiritual/Religious tenant of Ignatian Education. All faculty/staff members are seen as campus ministers in all they do with and for the young men at Jesuit High School. If you have questions or special prayer requests, please call us at (916) 482-6060 x292.

The Suscipe Prayer
We pray this together as a community every Friday morning.

Throughout their years at Jesuit High School, your sons will be introduced to St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuit Order, whose spirituality permeates our mission and identity.  One of the exercises Ignatius encouraged was that of intentional discernment in our lives.  We receive with gratitude the many Gifts from God, and offer them back to the Lord to be used in service to His greater glory. (AMDG=For the greater glory of God!)  Each Friday morning we pray the Suscipe, which begins, “Take, Lord, receive…”  


Liturgy & Prayer
On the morning of each school day, Tuesday-Friday, 7:30 am Mass is held in the Lady Chapel in the Chapel of the North American Martyrs. Students and parents are welcome.

PLEASE NOTE – while the school campus is closed and a stay-at-home order is in place no Masses will be held by order of Bishop Soto.


Several times during the school year the Jesuit High School Community gathers in prayer and worship. These liturgies and prayer services are centered on a particular religious or social concern and are planned by the Liturgy Committee. Jesuit offers Reconciliation Services once a semester for students. All are welcome to receive the Sacrament of Reconciliation, or, if not Catholic, receive a blessing.
