Ignatian Spirituality Programs

Go to the program offerings for Fall 2023

Ignatian Spirituality is the lens through which we see and prepare our faith formation for all ages.
Our mission is to help people develop the spirituality of St. Ignatius.

Our programs offer education, faith formation, group and individual prayer, and retreat experiences. View the video about our programs

  • Spiritual Direction: Ignatian spiritual direction is distinctly rooted in Ignatian spirituality and the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola.
  • Encountering the Living God:  A deeper experience offering you daily prayer, reflection and a weekly one-to-one meeting with a spiritual companion. Duration: 6-8 weeks. Anyone having completed the "Encounter" before is welcome to return again, choosing the same or a different spiritual companion.
  • The Spiritual Exercises: The full Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius is a path to deep conversion and discipleship.

  • After the Exercises:  If you have made the Spiritual Exercises, you know the journey has just begun.
  • The After the Exercises group gathers monthly for participant-led discussion intended to help you sustain this transformative experience and go deeper in your faith.

Daily Offering Prayer
O Jesus, I come before you at the beginning of this day. I gaze at your face, I look upon your side pierced by the lance. Your wounded heart speaks to me of God’s love poured out for us. Take, Lord, and receive my heart: the words of faith that I speak, the works of justice I would do, my joys and sufferings. When I come to the Eucharistic table, gather my offerings to your own for the life of the world. At the end of the day, place me with Mary, your mother, and for her sake take me to your Heart. Amen.
