• The Hurtado Jesuit Centre is a place of welcome and community in Wapping in London’s East End.

    We organise a range of events in and for the local community. Our events have three main aims. The first is to promote and support the work of social justice. Our second is to impart the riches of Ignatian spirituality. Our third is to build a community with Christ at its centre.

  • Based in the heart of Wapping, London

    The Hurtado Jesuit Centre seeks to embed itself in the community it finds itself. We serve the community of Wapping, and the deanery of Tower Hamlets.

  • The Centre’s patron is St Alberto Hurtado (1901-1952)

    Alberto was an ordained Jesuit priest, a qualified lawyer and an energetic social worker, enabling him to defend and promote the rights of the poor in church, in court and in every public sphere.
