Australian Jesuit, Fr Eka Tanaya SJ, was ordained to the priesthood at 11am on Saturday 14 November at St Ignatius' Church.

Madonna magazine

Madonna magazine, published by Jesuit Communications, has accompanied Australians in their daily prayer and spiritual growth for more than 120 years. With daily prayers, deep reflections, faith-focused articles and more recently online retreats – it is an ideal spiritual companion, particularly now when we may not be able to freely gather in person with our faith and spirituality communities.

JRS Appeal

The COVID-19 crisis has deeply affected people seeking asylum and refugees. From the beginning of the pandemic, many people have been relying on Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) Australia for urgent support.  Due to the crisis, many of the people JRS Australia serves have now lost the casual jobs that JRS Australia had helped them find. People seeking protection have struggled to meet their families’ needs, buy food, medicine and access healthcare. Now, high numbers of children, women and men are without food, face homelessness or are being threatened with eviction from the places where they live. Others have been sleeping in cars or moving in with other families.
