Ignatian Spiritual Direction Initiative

Find a Spiritual Director

Thank you for your interest in Ignatian spiritual direction! 

The primary job of a spiritual director is to accompany you on your spiritual journey. Trained directors are excellent listeners, who help you reflect on your spiritual life. 

Sometimes, the biggest challenge in getting started is finding a trained director in your area. 

We have created the OIS Catalog of Spiritual Directors to help you find a trained Ignatian director near you. If you are looking for a spiritual director, let us know by clicking the button below and filling out the brief form. Once you have submitted the form, we will search the Catalog for directors in your area. If there is a director available, we will send you their contact information. Please allow about two weeks for us to respond. 

Please note that we cannot guarantee that an Ignatian spiritual director is available in your area. Also, our Catalog contains information about directors on the East Coast of the United States only. Areas with available directors are listed below. Please check this list to be sure your area is listed. At this time, we are not able to offer this as a resource to people in other regions. 

If your area is not listed below, we recommend contacting a Jesuit retreat house near you.
