Jesuits in University Pastoral Care - JUPC
The presence of Jesuits in universities has been one of our main apostolates since the very beginning of the Order. Ignatius and his first companions met on a campus and dreamt together for a better world.
Today, Jesuits are present in many universities either as academics or by creating spaces for groups, meetings, celebrations and volunteering activities where faith is present and offered openly to students and young adult professionals.
Every year, JUPC brings together the various teams involved in university pastoral care.
The aim is threefold: formation, collaboration and looking together to the future. This apostolate keeps growing and its different initiatives are being united under the MAGIS brand. Like the events organized before the World Youth Days in: Krakow, Madrid and Cologne.
Thanks to the work of Jesuits, collaborators and friends, the dream of Ignatius and his first companions is still alive today in many campuses across Europe.
