The Center builds on the ideas of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin and seeks to actualize his Omega vision of emerging wholeness for a new vitality of the spirit.
Our founder, Ilia Delio, OSF, offers an exploration of the divine as an awareness of God’s loving, dynamic presence. This is a holistic vision–integrating spirituality, science, and contemplation–and open to all faith traditions. We seek to extend this vision to all those looking for an innovative spiritual life and a renewed role of religion in the 21st century.
Radical Faith: A World in Crisis and the God Revolution
Omega Center June 2020 Fundraising Drive
The Omega Center is committed to a new cosmic vision of God and world. Our critical task is to open the minds and hearts of all to seek renewed planetary life through a new spirituality and a new way of engaging the divine mystery. It is a global and daring vision but without seeing the world from a new perspective, we will continue to spiral downwards. Dare to live by daring to love in a new way.

The God Revolution: Beyond Racism and the Remaking of Religion
The 21st century needs a God Revolution. We must seek to redefine a God of creative love by seeking to renew a God in love entangled with a dynamic, unfinished universe. The future is open and ours to create; the COVID-19 crisis and our political unrest is an urgent invitation to remake our world. The new paradigm we seek, however, will not be possible without a complete renewal of religion. Without releasing the energies of love within our spiritual traditions, we cannot transform our lives.
