Who We Are

Rooted in the Ignatian tradition, the Ignatian Spirituality Centre of Montreal encourages experiences of encounter, communion, interiority, accompaniment, and formation to help people discover their spiritual paths and to flourish.

Ignatian spirituality is grounded in the conviction that God is active in our world. It is a way of discerning God’s presence in our everyday lives.

The Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius unfold a dynamic process of prayer, meditation, and self-awareness. The basic thrust is to make us more attentive to God’s activity in our world and more responsive to what God is calling us to do.

Ignatian spirituality is not merely an inward journey, much less a self-absorbed one. It aims to bring people more deeply into the world...
Gratitude, Humility, and passion for the fruition Of the other.

Territorial Acknowledgement
We recognize the Wickham Centre and Villa Saint-Martin are located on unceded traditional territory of the Kanien'kehá:ka (Mohawks), historically known as a place of gathering and exchange between nations. Today, a diverse indigenous population, as well as other peoples, reside here. The ISCM is grateful for the opportunity to gather, live, and work on this land. We want to respect First Nations' past, present, and future ties to these lands, and to take them into account in our relations with First Peoples and others who live here. Our recognition is only valid if we are genuinely committed, each day and over the long term, to the important efforts of decolonization, reparation, and reconciliation.
