Peter, was formed as Spiritual Director at the Lanteri Center for Ignatian Spirituality in Denver. In addition to conducting parish missions and public speaking programs, he directs silent retreats for laity and deacons, is one of the formators of future deacons at St. John Vianney seminary, guides faithful through the Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius, teaches pre-seminary program at Avila Institute.

Reverend Samuel Aquila, S.T.L, Archbishop of Denver granted In Ipso the decree of Private Juridical Personality and its programs are supported and recommended many spiritual and retreat masters as Father Daniel Barron, Director of Spiritual Formation at the Saint John Vianney Theological Seminary in Denver, and Father Greg Cleveland, OMV, executive Director of the Lanteri Center for Ignatian Spirituality. Prior to founding In Ipso, Peter owned and operated a high-end custom kitchen and cabinet design, manufacture and installation business, and won a number of awards including Kitchen of the Year in 2007 according to Colorado Homes and Lifestyles Magazine.

  • Module 7: The Way of God the Father

    “Whoever has seen me has seen the Father” (Jn 14:9). This three-week module will be an exercise in contemplating Jesus Christ as the definitive interpreter and living icon of God the Father (Jn 1:18; Col. 1:15). Following the guidance of Sacred Scripture and the theological reflections of Popes John Paul II and Benedict XVI, we will bring to light the glorious features of the face of the Father. This is the true God and Father whom (with Christ and in Christ) we are called to imitate as his beloved sons/children (Eph 5:1; Mt 5:48).
