Introducing our new 9-month program
October 2023 – June 2024

The ISCM is pleased to announce a new program that will allow you to experience “Ignatian discernment” – a way of listening to God based on the spiritual experience of Saint Ignatius of Loyola.

“Throughout his life, [ following his conversion, Ignatius] put Christ at the centre. And he did so through discernment. Discernment doesn’t mean always being right from the start, but rather navigating, having a compass to steer you along a road with many winding curves. Always letting ourselves be guided by the Holy Spirit, who leads us to an encounter with the Lord.”

The ISCM is pleased to announce a new program that will allow you to experience “Ignatian discernment” – a way of listening to God based on the spiritual experience of Saint Ignatius of Loyola.  Through our teachings, practical exercises, and individual spiritual accompaniment you will learn how to better recognize and respond to God through listening intimately to yourself, to the world, and to Scripture.  The two following modules will be held at our new locations for the Wickham Centre and the Villa Saint-Martin:
