Ignatian Training Program

The online program provides structure, content, mentoring and supervision to individuals who discerned a call to the ministry of spiritual direction or spiritual companioning.

Spiritual Directors are called to guide individuals who are seeking ongoing orientation, encouragement, and discernment in the life of the Spirit. Spiritual Companions are called to accompany men and women for a short time as they discover, develop, and deepen an intentional relationship with God.

This holistic spiritual formation program is designed and implemented in the spirit of cura personalis - adapting to the person’s gifts and talents while using the values and principles of the Ignatian tradition to understand situations as they arise.

The dynamics of the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius Loyola serve as the foundation for the program.

The next cohort of the Ignatian Training Program will begin in September 2021. Please see the Ignatian Training Program brochure for additional information and contact Martina O'Shea (moshea@trinity.org) if you are interested in receiving an application packet.
