Our Programs

Connecting Jesuits, Ignatian spiritual directors, and seekers to promote the ministry of the Spiritual Exercises.
Ignatian Formation

Our Ignatian Formation Initiative brings together Jesuits, Ignatian spirituality leaders, and seekers to promote the ministry of the Spiritual Exercises. We do this in partnership with current Ignatian spiritual directors, retreat directors, prayer companions, etc. Our goal is to create a community of Ignatian practitioners that can share resources, create new and innovative programming, and support one another.

For more inforamation on spiritual direction, visit our Ignatian Spiritual Direction Initiative page.

Ignatian Formation core programs are Magis and the Ignatian Leadership for Mission (ILM) retreat. Magis is an 18-month introduction to Ignatian spirituality that consists of four weekend gatherings and an Ignatian retreat. The ILM retreat is a silent retreat in the Ignatian tradition that focuses on the graces of gratitude, healing, call, and co-laboring. 

Visit our Magis and ILM Retreat pages for more information.
