To keep the fire of Ignatius’ love for God and the world burning in our hearts today, the Ignatian Spirituality Institute (ISI) offers an educational program for the training of spiritual directors in the tradition of the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius of Loyola.
ISI offers adult Christians of any denomination theological and spiritual tools for deepening Christian life and ministry, whether in the home, parish, congregation, or workplace. Thus, the ISI program is ideally suited to those interested in the ministry of spiritual direction and/or retreat work. While the Institute’s primary mission is the training of spiritual directors, ISI also admits students who wish to gain a better theological and spiritual grounding in personal prayer, discernment, and apostolic action. Provision is made in Year II for ISI participants who, rather than engaging explicitly in spiritual direction, wish to bring to their daily work and relationships the Ignatian vision of “finding God in all things.”
