St. John Berchmans was an enthusiastic student, an excellent orator and a cheerful and generous friend. He has been described as a young man of exemplary life.​

On the 400th Anniversary of his death, we wish to honor his legacy with the official foundation of the Jesuit Global Network of Schools on his feast day. Let us pray together, Jesuit and Companion Schools, to affirm our shared identity.​

The Jesuit Global Network of Schools will be an expression of a common identity and our commitment to contribute to a universal body with a universal mission. ​ ​


The most important thing in life is not to do extraordinary things, but to do the ordinary things in an extraordinary way”
