Charis Ministries

Charis Ministries is a Jesuit ministry to those in their 20s and 30s. An outreach of the Chicago-Detroit Province of the Society of Jesus, we offer retreats, leadership development and spiritual resources that bring the gifts of Ignatian spiritualiy 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.” St. Ignatius of Loyola challenges us to find God in all things. Charis Ministries strives to help young adults to see this grace in all aspects of their lives. Our events give young adults the opportunity to find this grace in the midst of their relationships, careers, struggles and joys.

Charis Ministries, headquartered in Chicago, serves young adults and those who minister to them through the nationwide Charis Partner Program. Members of the Partner Program offer our peer-led retreats in cities throughout the country.
