Ignatian Formation

Formation of our lay partners, grounded in solid spirituality, but moving our hearts into action, is key to the transformation of our society into something more closely resembling God's dream for our world.  Ignatian Spirituality offers a doorway to encounter with God, well-suited for our present age.  Out of that encounter arises bold desires to join Christ in his mission of building a world rooted in love, mercy, compassion, and community.
