At present, there are thirteen chapters meeting in the US and three in Europe. The coordinator of the Dublin Chapter is Mr. Steve Falci, an American citizen who lives and works in Dublin and who has strong connections with the Jesuits and long experience of Ignatian spirituality. The Chapter will meet once a month for prayer, reflection and a sharing on issues of concern to those in the business community.
