Formation Courses

Receiving Ignatian Formation

As a Christian you might be looking for something more, something that will deepen your faith and which will help you grow in your spiritual life. These courses aim to give you the foundation and the guidance you are looking for.

The Centre for Ignatian Spirituality is offering two courses. The first one is a Foundation Course in Ignatian Spirituality and the second one is a course in  spiritual accompaniment and retreat giving.

The first course will start in September 2024 and ends in June 2026. Completing this course will be considered as one of the requirements should one wish to follow the second course.
