The Maryland Province will fulfill this vision and accomplish this mission in each of its apostolic sectors and areas of administration and outreach, with four priorities guiding its efforts:
Ignatian formation: to actively encourage and support Jesuits and lay colleagues to engage in ongoing formation that is personal and spiritual, and that addresses the needs of one’s apostolic sector and/or ministry
Leadership: to actively encourage and support Jesuits and lay colleagues to take on and continue in positions of leadership and responsibility
Stewardship: to actively promote responsibility, both personal and communal, for the ongoing development and support of our apostolic works
Vocation promotion: to actively promote the Ignatian charism and the Society of Jesus

The mission of the Society of Jesus, as a religious order within the Catholic Church, is the service of faith and the promotion of the Gospel of peace in living and proclaiming the Word of God.
Share in the mission of the Maryland Province Jesuits by serving as a volunteer in the Ignatian way.
Donors give Jesuits the freedom, flexibility, resources, and training to respond to the needs of the Church.
