What is the Ignatian Spirituality Centre of Montreal?

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


The ISCM is a registered Canadian charity, founded by the Society of Jesus, the Jesuits, in 1913.

We offer spiritual renewal supported by:


  • Facilitated and accompanied retreats,


  • Ongoing spiritual accompaniment,


  • Formation in the Ignatian tradition,


  • Personalized activities and retreats with our partners.


Our services are available in English and French to anyone wishing to explore a spirituality based in the Ignatian tradition, regardless of religion or faith practice. We offer these services virtually and in-person at our different locations: the Wickham Centre and the Villa Saint-Martin.

The Wickham Centre

The Wickham Centre is conveniently located in the Notre-Dame-de-Grace borough of the City of Montreal, near the Loyola campus of Concordia University and Loyola High School.


The Centre plays an important role in the training and certification of spiritual accompaniers in Greater Montreal. Our attentive team, experts in listening, offers spiritual accompaniment, workshops, formation, retreats, and prayer support for individuals, parishes, and groups. 


Our facilities include meeting and spiritual accompaniment rooms, retreat spaces, a library, and a chapel.

The Villa Saint-Martin

Located on the banks of the Rivière-des-Prairies and surrounded by nature, the Villa Saint-Martin is a place of silence and peace, offering the opportunity to live a true experience of retreat from the world.


Retreatants in search of meaning, time for reflection, and the space to expand their spiritual journey, will find support and a caring accompaniment throughout their stay. Our beautiful location allows for introspection, meditation, and contemplation, affording each person time with themselves and their Creator.


The Villa offers retreat, meeting, and spiritual accompaniment rooms, dining room services, and many other spaces for prayer and reflection.
