Canisius Centre of Ignatian Spirituality



Canisius CIS Canisius Centre of Ignatian Spirituality is located in Pymble, New South Wales.

Ignatian Spirituality - a spirituality for our lives and times.

Canisius was established in 1939 as a Theological College in the formation of Australian Jesuits. In the mid 1970’s it became a Retreat House with a focus on giving and training others to give the Spiritual Exercises of St Ignatius of Loyola.

Today we warmly welcome all who seek a time of reflection, rest, spiritual conversation, contemplation and prayer, and in particular those seeking a deeper friendship with Jesus and a personal inner spiritual journey for engagement in the world.
