Evangelization

Evangelization

Sacred Story Institute is a Catholic/Jesuit non-profit dedicated to programs and publications that can reach the hearts of today’s Catholics. Our mission is to advance Third Millennium evangelization by helping Catholic Christians live a sacred story that reveals Christ and the Church as light for the world

Research

Research

Sacred Story Institute is pioneering a new research methodology that will investigate individuals’ life histories from multiple perspectives: spiritual, moral, psychological, medical, family of origin, prayer and faith practice. Our researchers employ the tools of faith, science and technology to illuminate human nature as a unity of body and spirit to support people’s integral growth in Christ.

Parish Renewal

Parish Renewal

The goal of all SSI research is to create programs that enable Catholics from all backgrounds to develop a discerning heart and a healing, personal relationship with Christ—in daily life. The vital, time-tested Examination of Conscience of St. Ignatius Loyola in our Forty Weeks: An Ignatian Path to Christ with Sacred Story Prayer will be the foundation for all our pastoral renewal programs.

Conscience Formation

Conscience Formation

No greater task faces Catholic parents, pastors and teachers today than educating the conscience of our youth. In a world with absolute freedoms and no absolute truths, one of our highest priorities is creating high quality K-8 conscience formation tools based on the discernment principles of St. Ignatius.

SSI Boards

SSI Boards

Effective evangelization demands a faith-informed method utilizing the skills, knowledge and passion of a diverse group of advisors. We are deeply grateful for their support, as they marshal the power of belief, science and technology to reveal the beauty and truth of our Faith.

SSI Publications

SSI Publications

Ignatius Loyola was a sinner-soldier transformed by grace into a spiritual genius. St. Ignatius gifted the Church with spiritual disciplines that are ideal for Third Millennium Evangelization. Sacred Story Insitute is creating effective Ignatian-inspired publications for this new age of evangelization.
