The General Curia

The Jesuit General Curia is the administrative centre of the Society. Just under 50 Jesuits work at the Curia with the vital assistance of about 50 lay people who collaborate on a day to day basis.

Collaboration with others is the only way the Society of Jesus can fulfil the mission entrusted to her.
