About Us

The Centre for Ignatian Spirituality (CIS) of the Maltese Jesuit Province promotes the spiritual legacy of St Ignatius of Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus (1491-1556).  Ignatian Spirituality emerged from Ignatius' own personal conversion and later spiritual experiences which marked him deeply for life.

CIS has been active in the Maltese Province for the past 30 years.

The Jesuit Centre for Ignatian Spirituality aims to serve the Maltese community through:

  • A yearly programme of spiritual activities, open to all
  • Evenings, Days, or weekends of recollection
  • The full and individually guided Spiritual Exercises in daily life
  • Prayer experiences to individuals at Parish level by the Parish Ignatian Ministry team*
  • Individual spiritual accompaniment
  • Training people with the necessary gifts as prayer guides and parish leaders
  • A 3-year training programme of Spiritual Directors and directors of Spiritual Exercises *
  • Supervision and Consultation for spiritual directors and prayer guides
  • Prayer online

* The Parish Ignatian Ministry (PIM) offers outreach-ministry in the Maltese parish community. Through a week or two of guided prayer, this ministry aims at giving people a profound experience of prayer on a one-to-one basis.


** CIS offers a formation programme to prepare lay and religious people in the art of spiritual accompaniment and retreat direction many of whom are now active collaborators in the Province's ministries.
