Cristo Rey San José is a Jesuit school. All Jesuits and apostolic partners are asked to do the following:
- Cultivate intellectual depth and apply Ignatian discernment to decision-making, charisms distinctive to our way of proceeding.
- Develop personal relationships with the poor to deepen our vocations and to better respond, individually as well as institutionally, to their needs.
- Leverage our institutions and networks of relationships in favor of the poor and the vulnerable.
- Serve as bridges between peoples who are estranged due to cultural, political, or socioeconomic differences.
- Care for the earth, our common home, with institutions and Jesuit communities using their resources to advance environmental justice.
