Jesuit Institute South Africa is a peaceful place where an inclusive and integrated faith-based vision of personal and social transformation is promoted. Jesuit Institute South Africa is dedicated to encouraging debate on current social and religious issues from a faith perspective and to stimulating critical reflection, research and dialogue.


We are keen to engage with all who have an interest in improving our society, working with those from various church and faith backgrounds as well as those from the business, political and educational sectors.


Through the wisdom and gift of St Ignatius of Loyola and the Ignatian tradition, JISA seeks to initiate and support existing works of reconciliation as well as the formation of young people and adults. Jesuit Institute South Africa seeks to expand the horizons of hope.


Jesuit Institute South Africa offers one-to-one accompaniment, programmes for deepening faith and prayer, training in spiritual direction and many other workshops, courses and retreats on a wide range of topics for all.
