Formation in matters of faith

A Jesuit education places faith formation at the centre of its scope, integrating the spiritual formation of each student into the entire education journey from childhood to young adulthood.

Students are encouraged to look into themselves to discover their spiritual identity and respond to God’s calling to them as individuals rooted in the everyday realities of today’s world.

Rooted in Jesuit tradition, students are offered various programmes, retreats and service experiences that encourage them to reflect on their own deep desires and on the needs of the world around them, ultimately to realise their full potential and better serve society.

College Staff are also offered formation by the specially designated Formation Team. 

Staff Formation team

The Ignatian Formation Team seeks to help the staff at St. Aloysius’ College to deepen their vision of Ignatian Pedagogy and Ignatian Sprituality. This is done in various ways:

  • Shared Vision Programme for New Members of Staff
  • Staff Development Days about Characteristics of Jesuit Education
  • SoulSpace Seminars for Teachers of Secondary School and Sixth Form Colleges
  • Spiritual Development Days for Teachers of Primary School
  • Spiritual Development Sessions for Administrative Staff
  • Spiritual Development Sessions for Domestic and Technical Staff
  • Optional Ignatian Retreats
  • Personal Meetings with Staff

The Ignatian Formation Team works in collaboration with the Jesuit Institute in London, as well as the CEFAEGI within the Foundation of Education within the Province.

For more information about the work of the Ignatian Formation Team contact the Coordinator: Christine Rossi on christine.rossi@staloysius.edu.mt or 22793241.
