Across the United States, the Society of Jesus, the U.S.'s largest order of priests and brothers in the Roman Catholic Church, runs universities, high schools and middle schools, parishes and retreat houses. And today, the 450-year-old religious order has an app.

Available for free at the iTunes App Store, the Jesuit app operates on any iPhone, iPod Touch or iPad; a similar app will soon be available at the Android Marketplace for use on devices such as the Droid, Evo and HTC Touch.

The new app allows users to locate Jesuit retreat centers, schools and parishes across the U.S., read the latest news and information about the Jesuits, and access Jesuit prayers and spirituality documents.

The app's three sections include:

Locations
Here users can find Jesuit apostolates -- parishes, retreat centers, colleges and universities. It includes easy-to-use directions and contact information for any Jesuit institution in the U.S. and is searchable by apostolate name, by the user's current location or through any address the user enters.

News
All the latest news stories from National Jesuit News are displayed here. Users can tap on any headline to view the full story, share the link with friends or open the story in their browser.

Prayer
In this section, users can view prayers, spirituality documents and background information on the Society of Jesus.

For more information on the Society of Jesus, visit http://www.jesuit.org.

The video explains in more detail how the app operates. Visit the app information page (http://www.jesuit.org/about/press-and...) to find out more.
