our programs

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.

Retreats

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

God loves us and calls us to love. God desires that we continually grow into who we are created to be. We experience this call to love as a desire to search for a deeper and more meaningful life and faith experience. LIS offers Ignatian Spiritual Formation opportunities as a pathway to discern and develop the gifts God has given us, and to actualize God’s call to love in our lives.

 

Beyond deepening the individual spiritual experience, formation allows people active in spiritual ministry to discover and discern a range of ways to serve the church and society by deepening their abilities to be more effective lay leaders in their faith communities.

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. 

If you are interested in any of our programs for your organization, please call our office at 714-997-9587 or email us at office@loyolainstitute.org.

 

We look forward to the opportunity to serve you and your community.
