            Ignatian Formation Program Curriculum

            The Ignatian Formation Program here at Saint Ignatius College Prep encourages all faculty and staff to continue to contribute to the Ignatian and Catholic vision of Jesuit education, both personally and professionally. Our goal is to foster a love of Christ through both program experiences and education. And our hope is that each employee, through prayerful discernment, will recognize where God is calling them today and be willing to share this grace with faculty, staff, parents, alumni and students in a professional and life-giving fashion.

            Specifically, the program is designed to foster the companionship between Jesuits and lay adults in our community; to set a priority of the service of faith and the promotion of justice with a preferential love of the poor; to minister to each member of the Saint Ignatius community and their spiritual growth (cura personalis), and; to empower our adult community to share responsibility and continual renewal of the Ignatian and Catholic mission.

            List of 6 items.

            • Year I

              The goal of the first and second year Ignatian Formation Program is to introduce all new employees to the basic terminology of Ignatian Spirituality and Jesuit history and pedagogy. Through the examination of key points presented in the Spiritual Exercises, as well as reviewing the life of Saint Ignatius of Loyola, this cohort will gain a working understanding of the history and the themes of Jesuit life. At the conclusion of the first year, all employees attend the Midwest Province Ignatian Themes Workshop with fellow new hires from fifteen other Jesuit high schools throughout the Province. We consider this a bridge experience between the larger Jesuit network and community as well as an introduction to the second year of the program.

            • Year III

              The goal of the third year adult program is to introduce faculty and staff to spiritual direction. Building on the foundation of the first two years, each faculty member will be paired with a spiritual director for a nine-month spiritual journey. Adults will be introduced to different styles of Ignatian prayer, including Ignatian contemplation and a deeper experience with the Examen. In addition, the Year III cohort will continue to meet monthly for shared conversation, study and prayer. At the conclusion of the third year, each person discerns—with the support and mentorship of the Adult Formation team -- their spiritual possibilities for fourth year.

            • Year IV

              The goal of the fourth year adult program is to provide an opportunity to respond to the call of companionship with Christ both personally and professionally through the Spiritual Exercises.

              This year the retreatant will meet with a spiritual director for the 19th Annotated Retreat, a form of the Spiritual Exercises in everyday life, as well as a morning of reflection at the conclusion of the academic year. In addition, there will be regularly scheduled meetings with a small prayer group.

              For some, developing an Ignatian capstone project that contributes to the Jesuit mission of the school is also a possibility, which may include engaging in year-long service with students or adults; leading a student retreat; integrating prayer more intentionally into the classroom or coaching; and/or reading and sharing with the larger faith community a variety of Ignatian resources in a particular area of interest.

            “In the next ten years (2019-2029), the Society of Jesus wants to share with others this most fundamental discovery of our own lives: Jesus Christ. We want to help people find Him and to live His way. We want to accompany people as they discern complex choices in the social, economic, cultural and political spheres. We will help to create environments that favors free personal processes, independent of social or ethnic pressure. We want to promote in-depth study of the Spiritual Exercises. We want to give the Exercises in places of social exclusion so that people will know they are part of one family in solidarity with one another and with the Creator. We want to offer a deeper alternative to secularism. A mature secular society will allow a greater and better exercise of religious freedom, recognizing the complex dimensions of human freedom.”
