Our major training program in giving the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius is a Three-Phase Program. Each phase is an entity in itself. Candidates apply for each successive phase separately upon successful completion of the previous phase.
Phase 3 is the Summer Training & Practicum in Spiritual Direction
This 11-week practicum provides participants with fundamental skills in ongoing spiritual direction and directing 3 to 8-day retreats. There are four components: an individual directed 8-day retreat, the Spiritual Directors’ Workshop, a seminar developing themes in Spiritual Direction and associated areas, and the opportunity to direct on three 8-day retreats with daily supervision, dependent upon suitability and readiness of each participant, as determined by Loyola House staff.
There is an application process for this program. For the application package please contact the registrar by email or call 519.824.1250 ext. 266.
Application deadline is February 1.
