Welcome to Campion
The Campion Centre of Ignatian Spirituality is a place of hospitality, welcome and prayer. We offer programs which are steeped in the spirituality of Saint Ignatius of Loyola (1491-1556).
Ignatius developed a way of personal spiritual growth based on his experience that God deals directly with each of us. He wrote down his spiritual practices in a book called ‘The Spiritual Exercises’, which is still relevant for modern men and women. His spirituality fosters interior freedom and facilitates good life decisions. The Spiritual Exercises have been variously named a school for prayer, a school for discernment and a school for loving action.
Ignatian spirituality helps us to build a personal relationship with Jesus. It includes intimate dialogue with Christ, reflection on how God is present in our daily lives, and prompts us to ask: What have I done for Christ? What am I doing for Christ? What ought I do for Christ?
This dialogue becomes our prayer, providing a new foundation for how we relate to Jesus within the context of daily life. Our decision- making, whether small or potentially life-changing, takes place in this intimate relationship with God and leads to positive action in our lives.
At the Campion Centre of Ignatian Spirituality, you are invited to deepen your ability to discern the ways God speaks to you, hearing God’s voice in the depths of your heart, your life, your story, your history. God calls us as individuals and as a community. We can hear where God is calling us to grow and we can hear where God is calling us to go. We can know who God is calling us to be and we can know what God is calling us to do.
We encourage you to explore our website and contact us should you wish to discuss any of our programs further. It is our prayer that you may feel God's loving presence and grace in your life.
