Jesuits in Britain: The Servant

January 2024

Dermot Preston is a Jesuit priest serving the parish and the poor in Newcastle. He says of the experience: “Britain has become a yet-more fragmented place with strikes and industrial action, but the poor cannot strike or withdraw their labour to make their absence felt – they cling on, watching somewhat helplessly, as the powers of this world push them about like corks in a fast-flowing river.”

Jesuits are contemplatives in action, rooted in the rich tradition of our spirituality, and living lives of service all around the world. We invite you too to live a life of faith in action. 

Please support our work helping those on the margins of society.
