We are a team of 4 Jesuit priests committed to helping people find God in all things.
The special gift of the Jesuits and our partners in mission has always been spiritual guidance. Our founder, St Ignatius of Loyola was gifted with skills of “helping souls” and in our own way, we too, do this through a ministry of Spiritual Direction and a variety of creative programmes using Scripture, prayer, poetry, literature and even film, to offer ongoing spiritual formation for those seeking to deepen their relationship with God. In Holy Week 2023, Fr. Jake Martin SJ guided us through three movies that might not have been the obvious choice for the sacred season, but which yielded rich fruit on reflection and discussion. Fr. Brendan McManus SJ, with Christine Halloran, offered an introductory course on Ignatian Spirituality using his recent title: Channelling the Inner Fire and Fr. Kieran O’Mahoney, an Augustinian Scripture scholar, introduced us to the richness of the readings of the Sundays in Advent: particularly the poetry of the Prophet Isaiah. Our charism offers special skills in understanding and practising the Synodal process of communal discernment and we offer training and formation to empower people to step into their Baptismal calling. We are involved in Campus Ministry at UU, Directorship of Boards and Ecumenism. We offer Days of Reflection for parishes and other groups upon request. Our Jesuit ministry is fully shared with lay persons.
