Another highlight in their work is their vocation to go to the borders, where the Gospel is not  yet known. For this reason, their missions take them far away places like China. The Jesuit order also runs 231 universities in 69 countries, and a large number of education centers across the globe.

Jesuits must get a civilian degree before getting ordained a priest. They must also take courses in philosophy and theology. In all, they must study for about 12 years before becoming priests.

They currently have 18,000 members, making them the largest Catholic order. Throughout their 600-year history, 51 Jesuits have been declared saints, and there are also dozens on the way to sainthood as well.
