ISP Omaha

About Us

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 Omaha History

ISP Omaha was founded in 2010 when the first overnight retreat was held ¬†Creighton University Retreat Center. ¬†Creighton has been a committed partner to ISP, with many members of men’s and women’s retreat teams coming to us from the School of Nursing, Law School, and College of Arts and Sciences. The Columban Center and St. John’s Church are other valued partners.
