Colombiere Jesuit Center and Cemetery
Colombiere Center opened as a Jesuit training facility in 1959. It is named for Claude de la Colombiere, a Jesuit teacher, orator, and spiritual director who lived in France from 1641 to 1682 and was canonized May 31, 1992. In the early 1990's, the use of Colombiere Center as a Jesuit training facility was discontinued. The Center now, above all else, is a Jesuit Community designed to serve infirm and elderly Jesuits and sponsored by the Detroit and Chicago Provinces. In addition to the retirement facility and Jesuit Infirmary, they also operate the Colombiere Conference and Retreat Centre on the grounds, as well as a substance abuse treatment facility, Insight, which has been onsite since 1978. The Jesuit Cemetery is also located on the same property.
