What is “Magis?” [pronounced "màh-gis"] It is a Latin word for
“more,” and is taken from the motto of the Society of Jesus (the
Jesuits), “Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam” which is translated, “For the
Greater Glory of God.” Magis is a key element of Jesuit
spirituality, inviting us to do more and to become more in the
hope of offering greater service. The Jesuit tradition calls us
in all matters to seek the greater good, the magis and become men
and women for others.
“Only by being a man or woman for others does one
become fully human.” - Pedro Arrupe, S.J.
Based upon Catholic Social Teaching, Scripture (Matthew 25), and
the Corporal Works of Mercy, the goal of the Arrupe Project is to
empower students to become men and women for others through
faith, service, and justice as they demonstrate our school’s
Student Learning Expectation of Being Committed to Doing Justice.
