Loyola Centre of Ignatian Spirituality is located in Norwood, South Australia.
Our Centre is co-located with St Ignatius Parish, Norwood and occupies rooms where St Mary of the Cross McKillop spent time in prayer during part of her time residing in Adelaide.
The focus of Loyola is to provide opportunities for people to reflect freely on how God is present in their lives and the world and to create space for authentic response to that presence. To help us to do this we offer a variety of experiences bearing in mind ‘It is not much knowledge that fills and satisfies the soul but the intimate understanding and relish of things’ (St. Ignatius in the Spiritual Exercises).
All spiritual direction and accompaniment, personal individually directed retreats, days of reflection and group programs are conducted in the quiet surroundings of our our Centre in Norwood. Our extended live-in retreats are held at the Sevenhill Centre of Ignatian Spirituality and St Joseph’s Retreat House at Largs Bay.
