Ignatian Spirituality Project

The Ignatian Spirituality Project is a most impressive ministry–a program that brings the graces of the Spiritual Exercises to homeless people, most of whom struggle with addiction to alcohol and drugs.  It operates in 20 cities and involves more than 400 lay volunteers.  ISP programs address spiritual issues, but a recent study shows that participants experience long-term change measurable in improvements in employment, housing, and other empirical factors.   Said executive director Tom Drexler, “we’re making a difference and now we have the numbers to prove it.”

  1. Congratulations and blessings on your ministry to the homeless.

    In my search for a suitable ministry in Social Justice I need some

    suggestions and information about appropriate steps to be

    useful in this or similar areas.

    Thanks for your help.
