Spiritual Companioning

Ignatius believed that we all need companions for the spiritual journey. At St. Ignatius of Loyola Parish, there are a variety of opportunities for accompaniment available to those with some experience and commitment to prayer and reflection who wish to deepen their relationship with God.

Spiritual Direction

Individual spiritual direction can help guide you to pay closer attention to the ways in which God is active in your life. For more information and referrals to spiritual directors in the Boston area, please contact Kathy Maher, Spiritual Life Coordinator or 617-552-6112.
