When a Servant is ready, he may begin to direct the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. A Servant begins by co-directing an 8-Day Spiritual Exercises retreat under the supervision of Fr. John Ignatius. Spiritual Exercises retreats are offered to Life Teen Missionaries and others who are interested according to availability.
Personal Spiritual Direction
Following his 30-day silent Spiritual Exercises, a Servant is permitted to begin the ministry of spiritual direction. Servants direct priests and leaders in ministry around the country as well as students and lay men and women in various careers.
Spiritual Direction Training
Spiritual Direction training is offered by Fr. John Ignatius to Servants interested in becoming Spiritual Directors. In addition to offering training, Fr. John also receives training in Spiritual Direction from the Institute of Priestly Formation.
Fr. John... something about FOCUS and spirituality education?
