General giving

The Society of Jesus (the Jesuits) is a religious order of the Roman Catholic Church with members spread throughout the world. There are presently in Greater China hundreds of Jesuits coming from 25 countries.   Jesuits are continuing the mission of Jesus Christ to preach, teach, heal, and reconcile. We ponder and interpret what God is saying in our hearts and we hope that finding God in all things we may with all our strength proclaim His glory.   We are ready to follow God under even the most difficult circumstances, to enter into and engage in dialogue with those of other faiths, cultures and value systems, and to stand in the front lines in the pursuit of justice and peace, bringing the message of the gospel that all men are yearning for deep in their hearts.     This project will assist the Jesuits in the past year to help the pastoral and apostolic work, and the offerings will be distributed by the Jesuits.     Other ways to support Check, Bank transfer, Cash, Credit card payment authorization, please see FAQ  

Taipei Ignatian Spirituality Center

Taipei Ignatian Spirituality Center   But we have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us.- 2 Corinthians 4:7     Introduction, Mission and Vision The mission of the Taipei Ignatian Spirituality Center (CIST) is to assist people to hear Christ’s voice and feel his love in daily life. Once people feel the care, acceptance and guidance of Jesus, it is easier to share this love with others. Today many people are troubled by loneliness and other wounds on the heart. Such challenges and tensions make us even more hungry for the love and care of God. They lead us to serach more deeply for meaning in life.   The CIST team use Ignatian spirituality and the Spiritual Exercises to help people draw closer to God. Through various spiritual activities such as: individual spiritual direction, prayer workshops, weekend retreats, 8-day retreats, 30-day retreats, using film to pray, using art to pray, discernment workshops, prison ministry, parish retreats and formation of spiritual directors. Through such activities we invite people to encounter God and develop a deeper more intimate relationship with God.   CIST was established 20 years ago. Thanks to the support of benefactors the activities that we offer and the people we have trained have increased in number. The current site of the spirituality centre on the first floor of the Tien Center is limited in space. As a result we are now renting other spaces in order to offer our activities. To provide better service, we plan to move to a new and improved location in 2020—the fourth floor of the Tien Center. This new site will include rooms for spiritual direction, a prayer room, a classroom for workshops and offices.   Recently the Society of Jesus (Jesuits) announced 4 apostolic preferences to focus our efforts for the next ten years around the world. The first preference is to show the way to God through the Spiritual Exercises and discernment. The CIST team hopes that in our new home even more people will encounter Christ, feel his love and hear his voice. We invite you to walk with us so that we may achieve this goal and live out this mission together.     Fundraising Items: 1. Support the renovation and relocation of the Spirituality Centre In 2020, the fourth floor of the Tien Center will become the new home of the Spirituality Centre (please see the virtual diagram of the foyer below).
