Welcome to Ignatian Associates

We are a lay apostolic community.

Ignatian Associates are lay Catholic adults, married and single, who dedicate their lives to practicing faith through Ignatian Spirituality. Our formation is rooted in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius of Loyola. We commit to lives of simplicity, apostolic availability, and fidelity to the Gospels in the context of our individual familial and secular vocations. We support each other as a faith community that complements traditional Catholic parish life. We share with each other our prayer lives and journeys with Christ. We companion with the Society of Jesus in ministries that serve the faith and promote justice. We welcome you to share this journey with us.


“I ask for the grace to know Jesus intimately, to love him more intensely, and so to follow him more closely.”

What is Ignatian Spirituality?
Ignatian Spirituality was developed by St. Ignatius of Loyola over 500 years ago and is the basis for how Ignatian Associates and Jesuits live out their Christian faith.
