“We cannot confine ourselves just to Catholics. Rather we have to reach out to the youth of all religions and no religion. This is where the true wealth of human kind is. That is where the destiny of our world is being shaped. Therefore that is where the Lord wishes that WE Jesuits be present actively and effectively as men on the frontiers of service to His Kingdom”

In order to continue the mission of Jesus Christ among the youth, we the Patna Jesuits rooted and grounded in His Love, strive to empower the youth, especially the unorganized youth and lend support to youth movements by harnessing their potentialities while accompanying them in the process of understanding and responding to the existing realities’ of our land in a constructive way.
