The Society of Jesus, also known as the Jesuits, is a Catholic religious order of priests and brothers founded by St. Ignatius of Loyola. The Jesuits serve the Church and the larger human community through various ministries – educational, spiritual and pastoral. The Society of Jesus with its general curia in Rome comprises of organizational units called provinces. The North-West Africa Province is one amongst the many provinces spread all over the world.
The North-West Africa Province of the Society of Jesus is constituted of the five English speaking West Africa Countries namely: Nigeria, Ghana, Sierra Leone, Liberia, and the Gambia. The North-West Africa Province emerged from what used to be known as the Nigeria-Ghana Region of the New York Province of the Society of JesusMore
We, the members of the North-West Africa Province of the Society of Jesus, realize, like our founder St. Ignatius, that we are weak and can do nothing good in the world except for the Spirit of God, which prompts us to works of faith and justice. Thus, like every other Jesuit formed in the spirit of the Spiritual Exercises, we strive to bring about the reign of God's kingdom in whatever ministry we are involved, and wherever we are missioned.
