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.

Hope is the main impulse of life. Why do we awake to a new day anticipating that things will improve? What accounts for the hope that lies within us? Teilhard de Chardin noticed that there is something else going on in the universe, something breaking through in the world, something not yet realized but coming to birth. Join our conversation April 3rd and together let us find hope in our time of crisis.
