Saintt Ignatius Church, Norwood

Saint Ignatius Parish, Norwood has been administered by the Jesuits for nearly 145 years. In 1848 a group of Austrian Jesuits, the first Jesuits to come to Australia, arrived in Port Adelaide to minister to the German-speaking Catholic community before coming to Norwood in 1869. They have long been replaced by Australian Jesuits who now work at home and abroad in many ministries such as primary, secondary and tertiary education, pastoral work, social services, with refugees through the Jesuit Refugee Service, and as industrial and migrant chaplains. Throughout the world Jesuits carry on the work of St Ignatius of Loyola, their founder, in these and other missions.
