||Why should Jesuits engage in work with those who are poor and marginalised? Because, as our recent General Congregations put it: Our mission today is the service of faith, of which the promotion of justice is an absolute requirement.
Direct service of those in need; social and cultural analysis; theological reflection on questions of injustice; and campaigning alongside others who strive to make our world a more just place - these are the elements of Jesuit Social Ministry, a fundamental aspect of the Society's work.
