The Center for Ignatian Spirituality
The Center serves as a resource for those seeking to develop a personal spirituality. Ignatian spirituality stands radically open to the diverse ways God enters the history of individuals and groups.
The staff of the Center for Ignatian Spirituality offers a variety of programs for faculty and staff, including a nine-month series of meetings for those who engage in The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius for Busy Persons, and many individual presentations on topics that relate spirituality with art, science, and social concerns.
Faculty and staff have access to the Center for ad-hoc pastoral concerns that arise in their lives, such as sickness or death in their families or in those of colleagues, and matters that touch upon practices of faith or religion.
The Center makes available to LMU faculty and staff some of the practical and experiential adaptations of Ignatian spirituality that enable them to integrate spirituality within their college, department or division.
This Web site is itself an ongoing resource. We offer a weekly spiritual essay, which can be found online here: Spiritual Essays.
