The Ignatian Spirituality Project (ISP) began in Chicago over 20 years ago and is now established in over 30 cities in the United States. ISP expanded to Toronto in early 2015, founded by students and staff associated with Regis College. ISP-Toronto offers men and women overnight retreat experiences in retreat centres outside of the city, as well as follow-up days of reflection and ongoing spiritual companionship in locations in the downtown core. Through a blend of Ignatian Spirituality and 12-step recovery principles, ISP retreats and spiritual support are effective and important resources in laying a foundation of hope and healing for those living on the margins.
