Our spirituality sets us apart.

The transformative power of Ignatian spirituality has shaped the lives of generations of people, and the Spiritual Exercises has even been embraced by religious groups from around the world.

On the East Coast, thanks to the generosity of friends like you, the Office of Ignatian Spirituality is finding new ways to connect with retreatants, parishioners, students, families and those in need who are committed for faith formation.

Please consider making a gift that will help us to connect even more people to the spiritual legacy of St. Ignatius. As one of our benefactors, you will be remembered in our daily Masses and will always be in our prayers. Thank you for your generosity. May the risen Lord bless you and your loved ones.

Ignatian spirituality teaches us to discern the movement of God’s Spirit in the human heart, in history, and in the world – and it inspires all aspects of our work. We are committed to helping people find God through the wisdom of St. Ignatius.

Charis retreats offer young adults the opportunity to explore prayerfully the unique challenges people face in their 20s and 30s. Our Magis program helps lay leaders shape their spiritual lives around the basic commitments of St. Ignatius and the Society of Jesus: prayer, discernment, and social justice.

We are committed to forming the next generation of Ignatian leaders and co-laborers for mission.

Contemplative Leaders in Action (CLA) forms young adults in Ignatian spirituality and leadership, encouraging them to live as women and men for others in their personal and professional lives. Our Escuela de Espiritualidad Ignaciana (School of Ignatian Spirituality) prepares lay leaders to serve God and others in their parishes and communities. Our Ignatian Leadership for Mission Retreat offers lay leaders the opportunity to experience specific graces of the Spiritual Exercises that aid them in their work as co-laborers.

How you can help:

  •  Your support allows us to connect more people to resources available through Jesuit retreat houses, schools, and parishes. 
  •  Your generous support allows us to make Ignatian spiritual direction available to more people in more places.
