What We Do

Jesuits are men sharing in Christ's mission in the world. We are ready to go anywhere, at anytime and do anything, in the Lord's service and for His glory. The Jesuits run a number of ministries and institutions within the Malaysia-Singapore region (as listed below). Some of our men have also been sent to work in Jesuit mission overseas. Furthermore, there are those who have been missioned to external ministries, both locally and internationally.


The Jesuits have been administering the Church of St. Ignatius in Singapore , and the Church of St. Francis Xavier in Petaling Jaya , ever since they started in 1961.

The original Church of St. Ignatius was demolished to make way for a new church building which was opened in 2004. The Church of St. Francis Xavier was renovated in 2009.


The Centre for Ignatian Spirituality and Counselling (CISC), located in Kingsmead Hall, Singapore, offers various programmes, such as retreats, and workshops/seminars on spirituality, and also counselling services.

The Maranatha Retreat House in Janda Baik, near Kuala Lumpur, offers regular thematic retreats throughout the year. Individuals or groups may also book the facilities for prayer, recollection and retreats.
