LIS provides opportunities for spiritual engagement and development for all seekers of spiritual freedom and relationship with our Creator. We provide opportunities for individual study, leadership development, retreats, special events, and groups.


Our retreats are based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola and are meant to be experienced amidst one's daily life.

special topics

Often our instructors will offer a course on a topic of their expertise or passion. These include such titles as BioSpiritual Focusing, Journal Writing, and Women in the Bible. We also offer the the 3-year intensive Catholic Bible Institute for those interested in deepening their understanding of Scripture. 

Programs for groups

Any of the above programs can be adapted and personalized for your group. We can host your group at the Spirituality Building or come to you.  Retreats and enrichment courses are a great way to support the spiritual growth of your faculty, staff, parishioners, families, volunteers, or youth groups. LIS is currently an integral part of the Diaconate Programs in Orange County and Los Angeles.
