Charis Ministries nurtures the life-long desire of men and women in their 20s and 30s for spiritual growth through a closer friendship with Jesus Christ using the gifts of Ignatian Spirituality.
Charis Ministries is a Jesuit ministry to those in their 20s & 30s. A ministry of the Chicago-Detroit Province of the Society of Jesus, we offer retreats, leadership development and formation activities that bring the gifts of Ignatian Spirituality to the lives of young adults.
The word "Charis" (pronounced Ka-ris) is from the Greek and can be translated as "grace" or "special presence of the Divine." Charis Ministries strives to help young adults to see this grace in all aspects of their lives. St. Ignatius of Loyola challenges us to find God in all things. Our events give young adults the opportunity to find this grace in the midst of their relationships, careers, struggles, and joys.
Charis Ministries is based in Chicago but serves young adults and those who minister to them nationwide through the Charis Partner Program. Members of the Partner Program offer Charis retreats in cities throughout the country.
