Spiritual direction is an on-going relationship between a “directee” (person seeking direction) and a “director” (qualified person giving guidance) to discuss the directee’s spiritual life. Through conversation and reflection, the directee becomes more attuned, and can respond more fully, to God in all areas of their life.Learn More
Rooted in Ignatian spirituality and scripture, CLC’s mission is to enable students to walk together on their personal and communal faith journeys. CLC groups seek to create a space for being attentive to the Spirit in their lives and world around them and to respond out of love. Groups meet once a week for an hour, and members have the opportunity to attend retreats and activities throughout the year.
The Arrupe International Immersion program accepts graduate students for the Adult Mentor role. Mentors accompany our groups throughout the yearlong program experience, including international travel.
Additionally, a number of graduate schools sponsor their own service-immersion trips for students.
