Magis Program

We are no longer accepting applications for the 2017 Magis South cohort. Check back in the spring for application information for next year's cohort. Questions? Contact Kevin O'Brien at



The Magis Program is a structured and creative way for people to engage more deeply in Ignatian spirituality, learn about the Jesuit Mission and Way of Proceeding, and meet other committed lay colleagues on the East Coast. The eighteen-month program consists of four 2-day seminars, one retreat (click here for information on our ILM Retreats), regular reading, personal reflection and prayer.

Magis participants are lay women and men who desire to develop a greater familiarity with the Ignatian and Jesuit charism. The program team and seminar presenters are lay and Jesuit colleagues drawn from a variety of ministries.

A new cohort will be starting in Spring 2017. Seminar dates and locations for the new cohort:

  • March 24-26, 2017 -- Loyola on the Potomac, Faulkner, MD
  • October 19-21, 2017 -- Jesuit Center, Wernersville, PA
  • March 23-25, 2018 -- Loyola on the Potomac, Faulkner, MD
  • October 18-20, 2018  -- Jesuit Center, Wernersville, PA

Cost is $1,000 and includes room and board for four 2-day seminars and all materials. (Cost of the retreat is not included)
