Sacred Story Institute

3 Seasons

Do you want a missionary discipleship community and a parish that is built to last? Then use the tools the first Jesuits employed to produce their extraordinary pastoral success with the new dynamic methods we created to deliver them: The Ignatian Examen and Confession.
Our Ignatian programs are designed to target smaller groups of parishioners who are ready to dive deep into their faith. A small group who make Christ the center of their daily lives can transform a parish faith community more powerfully than a large group program that demands less personal investment. This is a unique Jesuit method of evangelization that was pioneered by St. Ignatius Loyola and it works! Invest in programs that will carry your faith community forward, built on the time-tested spirituality and evangelization methods of St. Ignatius Loyola.
