We Are


LIS Associates are graduates of the Ignatian Spiritual Formation Program (ISFP), the Programa de Formación Espiritual Ignaciana (PFEI), and others with equivalent spiritual formation and expertise who collaborate with LIS in promoting Ignatian spiritual ministries and pastoral leadership. 

LIS Associates are lay men and women, permanent deacons and priests, religious sisters and brothers who have a gift for spiritual development and some background in Ignatian spirituality.  They include Roman Catholics as well as Christians of other denominations.  LIS Associates work side by side with LIS staff in providing a wide variety of spiritual services, formation, and training.  They are available on a part-time and/or volunteer basis, and may or may not receive a stipend for their services.  Associates are recognized by LIS as having a certain expertise in Ignatian spirituality and a readiness to share that spirituality with others.

"LIS will always hold a special place in my heart.  It has been for me a home, a place of renewal and transformation, a place for growth and healing, and wonderful companions."                                        -Jack Gonsalves, LIS Associate
