“This has opened my mind and heart to want to serve others” - These are the words of a U of D Jesuit student who takes part in our life-changing pallbearer ministry. The ministry holds the belief that all people, regardless of their social standing, deserve to be buried with dignity and respect.
This program is just one of the Jesuit experiences your son can be part of at U of D Jesuit.
This World War II photo was taken on Iwo Jima in 1945 during the invasion. The two young men receiving Communion are brothers and graduates of U of D Jesuit. George King ’38 (center) had just arrived on the island and learned his brother, William King ’37 (left), was only a few miles away near the front lines. Just as they met, a priest came to distribute Communion to the fighters. They asked to receive together. The two brothers returned home safely after the war. However, two other young alumni from the class of 1940 were killed in the Iwo Jima battle. More than 600 U of D Jesuit grads served in WW II, 42 of them lost their lives. On this Memorial Day we pray for all who died fighting for our country.

U of D Jesuit was featured on the NBC TODAY Show because of our efforts in addressing the mental health of students and student-athletes. The hallmark of Jesuit education is “Cura Personalis” or Care for the Whole Person. Adapting new ways to serve our students academically, socially, spiritually, and emotionally is our priority.
U of D Jesuit is receiving gifts from the estates of two benefactors totaling $10 million. The donations represent the largest estate gifts in the school’s 145-year history. The value of the bequests will create the top two endowed student scholarships at U of D Jesuit.
“Our prime educational objective is to form ‘Men for Others’ for the greater honor and glory of God”

Our commitment to service and justice cannot be matched. Community service and outreach have played an integral role in our students’ education.
