Welcome and thank you for your interest in courses of study in Ignatian Spirituality
The two courses of study formerly offered by the Jesuit College of Spirituality (JCS), first as part of the University of Divinity, and more recently hosted by Australian Catholic University (ACU), have fully now been adopted by ACU’s Faculty of Philosophy and Theology. There they are overseen by several people who were involved with the Jesuit College of Spirituality: Associate Professors Jamie Calder SJ and Robyn Horner, and Drs Christiaan Jacobs-Vandegeer and Michael Smith SJ.
Please click here to find an announcement from Fr Quyen VU SJ (Provincial, The Society of Jesus in Australia) about the closure of JCS and the arrangements that have been made for the future of its programmes.
