Our CIS outreach teams are available to work in your parish, school or group setting. Our desire is to come to you wherever that may be within Australia, to help build up the prayer life and spirituality of your community. Experienced spiritual directors will work closely with you in developing a program that will allow participants to deepen their personal prayer life and relationship with God. Our programs also encourage the development of spiritual leaders within your parish or groups.
