Ignatian Spiritual Direction

Supporting trained Ignatian spiritual directors.
For Ignatian Spiritual Directors

Thank you for all you do as an Ignatian spiritual director. At the Office of Ignatian Spirituality, we are committed to supporting you in your important work.

The Ignatian community on the East Coast has identified a need for more people trained and capable of offering spiritual direction. One challenge is the lack of trained directors. Another is relative lack of opportunities for collaboration among directors in different places. Our goal is to address these challanges in the Ignatian community by 1) connecting spiritual directors to people seeking direction, 2) connecting spiritual directors with one another to share ideas, experience and resources, and 3) providing training opportunities for new spiritual directors.

OIS Catalog of Spiritual Directors

We maintain a database of people within the two East Coast provinces of the Society of Jesus (Maine to Georgia) currently offering, or available to offer, spiritual direction in the Ignatian tradition. This is a valuable resource for those trying to find a spiritual director. It can also aid directors by helping to connect them to one another for mutual support and networking.
