Faber welcomes a new era

jisa logo AustralianOchreJuly 2020, we formed the new national body of Jesuit and Ignatian Spirituality Australia (JISA).   Our community is a newly formed nationally administered body incorporating the Australian Centres of Ignatian Spirituality: Campion in Melbourne Victoria, Sevenhill and Loyola-Adelaide in South Australia, Faber in Brisbane Queensland and Canisius in Sydney New South Wales. Our community also includes the mobile and online First Spiritual Exercises ministry and the Being with God in Nature ministry which is inspired by Pope Francis’ encyclical Laudato Si.

We are a national community of women and men formed in Ignatian Spirituality. Our coming together enables more agility and mobility, to go where the needs are greater, to continue interacting with you wherever you are, whether it’s in your parish, school, diocese, organisation, online or out in nature.

We give the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola and accompany individuals and groups through spiritual conversation and spiritual direction. We offer retreats, ministry supervision and Ignatian formation for leadership and mission. Our facilities are available for day programs, residential retreats and hospitality.  Please email us at our new email address faber@jisa.org.au
