Resources help bring the experience of refugees and asylum seekers into your prayer.
We pray for refugees in camps around the world. May all people be accommodated in dignified conditions.
The Examen prayer is a popular method of praying developed by St Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Jesuits. The prayer is focused on reflecting God’s presence in a particular experience. We have worked to create an Examen to help you prayerfully reflect on the experience of refugees.

We have joined together with Jesuit work Pray As You Go to bring you ‘Way of the Cross’ a stations of the cross audio series allowing you to follow Jesus on his journey to the cross and the Resurrection, whilst praying for refugees around the world. It is voiced by refugee friends of JRS UK.
Lent is a time of repentance and renewal for Christians. It is a time when we turn away from our sinfulness and recommit ourselves to following Jesus.
As we approach the season of Lent, JRS invites you to receive our regular emails with resources for prayer and reflection supporting our shared Lenten observances of Fasting, Alms and Prayer.
Praying the Stations of the Cross is a traditional way of praying during Lent. We pray this familiar prayer to be with Jesus Christ who walked this journey, carrying the cross, the instrument of his death, out of love and commitment to us.
We have developed these Stations of the Cross meditations to aid your prayer during Lent and Holy Week. You can use this resource as a Parish Group, school, as a family, or individually.
We have teamed up with St Beuno’s Jesuit Spirituality Centre to create an online Advent Calendar of prayer and reflection as we prepare for Christmas.
