The Center for Christogenesis is a spiritual organization that serves an axial role in our time, bridging faith, science, culture, and community.
The Center builds on the ideas of Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
and seeks to actualize his 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.

The Hours of the Universe: Reflections on God, Science, and the Human Journey
