In a letter written on May 2, 2012, the Rector of the Pontifical Gregorian University, announced the creation of an Ignatian Spirituality Centre within the Institute of Spirituality. The Centre starts its activity in the 2012-2013 Academic Year, under the direction of Fr. Mark Rotsaert s.j, former director of the Center until fall 2017, then continued with Fr. James E. Grummer in the Academic Year 2017-2018. The first mission of the Centre is to offer an academic program of courses and seminars to the Institute of Spirituality students. Moreover, the Centre could organize round tables, workshops, etc. about different aspects of ignatian spirituality, using a wider perspective than the academic one. The workgroup Ignatian Spirituality and Transcendental Method is part of the Centre.

P. James E. Grummer, SJ

Director of the Centre
