At the Jesuit Center, we deliberately keep our programs affordable. We offer scholarships to retreatants who cannot afford even our modest fees, and we welcome economically-challenged folks from the inner city. We hope you join us for this very important fundraising event!

O God, you are my God, I seek you, my soul thirsts for you (Psalm 63:1)
We thirst for God: we desire to grow in our relationship with the Lord of Life. Spiritual direction is an ancient ministry of the Christian community; its purpose is to help individuals deepen their relationship with God. It is a ministry that the staff and associate staff of the Jesuit Center for Spiritual Growth offer individuals who want to grow spiritually and who are seeking companionship in their spiritual journey. The director helps the directee to look honestly at her/his relationship with God and to notice and respond to God’s communication in prayer and life experiences. The focus on the directee’s experiences of God distinguishes spiritual direction from psychological counseling and therapy. We enjoy providing spiritual direction and consider it a vital part of our ministry here at the Center, both in the context of retreats and as an ongoing practice. Our directors are well experienced in companioning individuals of various faith traditions.
