“We are so glad to have a Jesuit parish in the city of Atlanta,” says Fr. Robert Hussey, SJ, provincial of The Maryland Province Jesuits. “The church in Atlanta has been growing dramatically in recent decades. We want to increase our serving and collaborating with the people of God in this place of vibrancy for the church, now in the form of Jesuit parish ministry.”


St. Thomas More is also the Jesuit community for the entire Atlanta area. Jesuits who serve the parish, Cristo Rey High School and the Ignatius House Retreat Center live in community at St. Thomas More. “I have always believed that having Jesuits operate from a parish base, going out from that base each morning to do work in different ways and in other places, is an ideal model for Jesuit ministry,” says Pastor, Fr. Mark Horak, SJ. “As a Jesuit community, we spend time together, encourage one another, talk with each other about our respective works, and nourish our imaginations and spirits. I foresee developing a coordinated, coherent apostolic plan for the Atlanta area.”
