About the Universal Apostolic Preferences
The Universal Apostolic Preferences of the Society of Jesusor UAPs, are the fruit of a two-year process of discernment that took place in the heart of the Jesuit order. The Preferences give a horizon, a point of reference to the whole Society of Jesus and to their partners in mission, and offer a useful perspective for the whole Church. The new Preferences are four areas vital for our world today:

  • Showing the way to God: Show the way to God through the Spiritual Exercises and discernment 
  • Walking with the Excluded: Walk with the poor, the outcasts of the world, those whose dignity has been violated, in a mission of reconciliation and justice
  • Journeying with Youth: Accompany young people in the creation of a hope-filled future
  • Caring for our Common Home: Collaborate, with Gospel depth, for the protection and renewal of God’s Creation

The Society of Jesus will pay special attention to them in the next ten years, and the Jesuits invite everyone to reflect on them and put them into action. You can learn more at Jesuits.Global Web site.
