The staff of the Center for Ignatian Spirituality is available to faculty and staff for spiritual accompaniment and to assist in the formation of spiritual conversation groups.  

SPIRITUAL ACCOMPANIMENT

Outside of the experience of making the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola, one may seek ongoing accompaniment in one's prayer with a spiritual guide, often called a spiritual director.    

FAITH-SHARING GROUPS

Many persons find spiritual enrichment when they have opportunities to have spiritual conversations with their peers about life, work, prayer, scripture, contemporary issues, or published materials. Faith-sharing groups are often part of a retreat experience or extended program but they may also be an ongoing gathering of persons.   

SPIRITUAL COMPANIONSHIP

Another type of spiritual conversation happens organically with a spouse, relative, or friend. Such a relationship is mutual and less formal than spiritual accompaniment and faith-sharing groups. Spiritual companionship is a gift to be recognized and cherished in one's life.
