“This community, transcending boundaries and borders, opens a new way of proceeding for our schools in service of the Jesuit mission: companions of reconciliation and justice – with God, within humanity and with creation (GC 36 Decree #1).”
(Text taken from the Educate Magis Mission)
The Mission of Educate Magis is to nurture a vibrant online community connecting educators from Jesuit and Ignatian schools around the world.
This community, transcending boundaries and borders, opens a new way of proceeding for our schools in service of the Jesuit mission: companions of reconciliation and justice – with God, within humanity and with creation (GC 36 Decree #1).
Educate Magis is dedicated to answering the call of the Society of Jesus to become a “universal body with a universal mission”, enabling educators in our global school network to collaborate in solidarity as a global community.
Over the ten year Universal Apostolic Preference (UAP) period (2019 to 2029), Educate Magis, the global online community of Jesuit and Ignatian educators,aspires to empower our global network of schools to continue the process of renewal, innovation and re-imagination of the Living Tradition of Jesuit Education through the lens of the UAPs.
Educate Magis will continue to share programs and resources available in our global network, as well as facilitate the build of new ones through global collaborations, with a view to supporting Jesuit schools in their commitment to:
- being Catholic and offering in-depth faith formation in dialogue with other religions and worldviews
- educating for Global Citizenship
- caring for all Creation
- being a Global Network at the service of the Mission of the Society of Jesus
Join our vibrant global community of Jesuit Educators from around the world.
