Company of Jesus

A Third-Order Benedictine, Franciscan & Celtic Community


St. Patrick of Ireland

The Celtic Charism within the Company of Jesus is modeled after the ancient path and passion of St. Patrick, Apostle to the Irish. We invite individuals, small groups, and communities who are committed to pioneering the “thin places” of night & day prayer. We believe, like Patrick, that living a life of prayer will fuel passion for evangelism and outreach.   

Men and Women within the Celtic Charism practice a lifestyle of Accountability, Simplicity, and Availability to the Holy Spirit.  Our Charism’s “motherhouse” is located at St. Patrick’s Priory in Parkersburg, West Virginia.
