The Xavier Network, which comprises 13 Jesuit mission and development organisations across Europe, Canada and Australia, is launching its new website on Friday, 1 December. This is in anticipation of the Feast of St Francis Xavier, the patron saint of missionaries and one of the founding members of the Society of Jesus, on 3 December. 

The new website will inform people about the work that the Xavier Network does through the collaboration of the members.  It is also a portal which links people to the work that each individual Jesuit organisation does.  The new website link is here:


The Xavier Network was set up to help our member organisations work together to increase the impact of our activities on behalf of vulnerable people around the world. The members collaborate in response to humanitarian emergencies, share a common approach to working with key Jesuit partners, and share our experiences, training and best practice in areas like volunteering.  We are also working together to advocate on behalf of the poor and marginalised for a more just world.
