Historical Note

The Jesuit Guild of Washington, as explained by their constitution, was created to "unite the members for social and constructive purposes"; to "assist in a spiritual way the works of the Society of Jesus at home and on the Missions"; and to "help the Society of Jesus in a material way in any manner approved by the majortity of the members." It was governed by a moderator (a member of the Society of Jesus) and 11 elected officials (president, vice-president, recording secretary, correspondence secretary, financial secretary, treasurer, co-treasurer, and four directors). Membership was open to anyone interested in the objectives of the Guild and who paid their dues. The Guild was started by 1955 and was in existence until at least 1982.
