ISP Seattle

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 Seattle History

The first ISP Seattle retreat was held in 2007; though a full volunteer team was not established until 2012.  Local partners have included Jubilee House, Matt Talbot Center, Rainbow Lodge, Recovery Cafe, and Christ Our Hope parish.
