Thank you for your interest in the Magis Program! 

The application consists of the questions found on this form (after you click "next" below) and two references.

Reference forms should be completed by one person who directs your work in a Jesuit apostolate and another a person of your choice who knows you well enough to address the questions on the reference form. Please send this link to your references:

Please submit your application by December 1, 2018. If selected for the program, you will be expected to participate in four seminars and one Ignatian Leadership for Mission retreat (or a mutually agreed upon substitute). Visit the ILM retreat webpage to see upcoming dates and locations.

Dates of Magis seminars:
  • Seminar I: March 21-23, 2019, Loyola on the Potomac, Faulkner, MD
  • Seminar II: Oct. 11-13, 2019, Jesuit Center, Wernersville, PA
  • Seminar III: March 12-14, 2020, Loyola on the Potomac, Faulkner, MD
  • Seminar IV: Oct. 15-17, 2020, Jesuit Center, Wernersville, PA
Besides the seminars and retreat, participants will engage in personal prayer, reading and reflection. The $1,000 program fee covers lodging, meals and materials for the four seminars (but not the separate retreat fee). Unless other arrangements are made, the balance is due February 1, 2019. If there are concerns about the fee, please contact me.

If you have questions about the application process or the requirements of the program please don’t hesitate to contact me.

We look forward to working with you.
