Sister Deignan Institute for Earth and Spirit is a gift of Alumnus and benefactor Christopher J. O’Connor, one of Sister Kathleen's first students at Iona.  Through his generosity, her legacy of liberating education will live on to serve and prosper future generations of Iona students and the many diverse publics served by the Institute for Earth and Spirit in its enriched programming.

The Mission of the Institute for Earth and Spirit at Iona is to foster an integral and peaceful Earth community in the light of religious faith, evolutionary cosmology, and environmental science. The Institute will work in collaboration with its three ventures founded by Kathleen Deignan, CND during her 40-year tenure at Iona: The Iona Spirituality Center, The Thomas Merton Contemplative Initiative and The Thomas Berry Forum for Ecological Dialogue. 
 

Challenged by our planetary crisis while rooted in the inspiring legacy of St. Columba's monastic university at Iona, Sister Deignan, CND Institute for Earth and Spirit will conspire with dedicated and creative partners to revive and protect our Common Home through transformative environmental education, spiritual animation, and creative celebration.
 
Please join us in this endeavor.  Become part of our engaged community by sending us your email address for invitations to participate in our offerings and partner in building Sister Deignan, CND Institute for Earth and Spirit.

The Earth and Spirit Institute logo is a detail from the Book of Kells begun by our patron, Saint Columba at Iona. The vibrant orb suggests the dynamic cosmos in its myriad radiations of creativity and splendor.

Our Common Home.
