About Us

IHS Black text lg

We are an initiative of the Australian Jesuits and a Christian not-for-profit organisation.

We are a team of lay people, religious and Jesuits creating a community of Givers and Receivers of the First Spiritual Exercises.




The First Spiritual Exercises (FSE) are a form of the Spiritual Exercises created by St Ignatius Loyola some 480 years ago.

They have helped large numbers of people to begin or deepen personal relationship with God, enriching their interior life, fleshing out their daily lives to be happier, more peaceful people, open to greater service of others.

 Our community responsibilities are outlined here.





This FSE Cloud Community site is administered by the Australian National Team of  the First Spiritual Exercises Program: Michael Hansen SJ, Frances Tilly, Chris Gardner, Julie Tranfa and Martin Scroop.

The FSE Community has two helpers, Gracelyn Vega and Jeanette Fitzmaurice, helping the community as a whole.
