We at Jesuit Communications (JesCom) are involved in the production of audiovisual materials for evangelization and education. Our mission statement is inspired by a prayer that Fr. Jim Reuter used to recite together with his crew before every performance of a play: “Give us the grace to present this play so that we will bring all those who are touched by it and all those who are involved in it closer to God.” Thus, part of the JesCom mission is to use media – from the visual, to the musical – in the most effective manner possible, in order to empower the Church to proclaim the Gospel and its values.

The Jesuit Music Ministry offers significant teachings and services to enhance and practice our God-given talents, such as Liturgical Music Seminars and Workshops, and Voice Trainings, which help choirs understand their role in the liturgy and choose appropriate songs for the mass, and help choirs sing better through vocal exercises respectively.
The Jesuit Music Ministry (JMM), an official ministry in the Philippine Province of the Society of Jesus, traces its roots to the pioneering work of Fr. Eduardo Hontiveros SJ, who began composing Filipino liturgical songs in response to the mandate of Vatican II in the ‘60s. Vatican II’s Sacrosanctum Concilium urged the entire assembly to actively participate in the liturgy that includes singing. From the first song Fr. Honti composed for a group of young boys and girls in Barangka, Marikina to the songs composed by present generation Jesuits and lay partners, JMM songs have been sung in churches not only in the Philippines but in the world.
