Founded in 1998 in Chicago, IL by Fr. Bill Creed, SJ, and Ed Shurna (formerly Executive Director of the Chicago Coalition for the Homeless), the Ignatian Spirituality Project (ISP) offers experiences of hope, healing, and belonging to men and women recovering from homelessness and addiction. By inviting our participants into a deeper encounter with the God of their understanding, ISP retreats and spiritual programs provide the encouragement and empowerment necessary to make real, transformative life changes. Today, ISP offers retreats, follow up and spiritual accompaniment programs across the United States, Canada, and Ireland.
ISP Milwaukee History
An initial retreat took place at Casa Romero Renewal Center in September 2001. In 2009, a volunteer team formed out of individuals working in ministry at Marquette University and the first retreat was held in 2009. Thee Pallotti Retreat Center and involved parishioners from Gesu Catholic Church were instrumental in the ISP Milwaukee program.
