ICSSD was established in 2007 for the support and training of spiritual directors and for the promotion of spiritual direction within the Stockton Diocese. The Institute is now led by the Verbum Dei Sisters and companioned by the Jesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University in Berkeley, California
On May 28, 2013, Bishop Stephen E. Blaire of the Stockton Diocese granted canonical recognition to the Institute of Catholic Spirituality and Spiritual Direction as a Private Association of the Christian Faithful. "I welcome the Institute as a work of the apostolate for spiritual growth and development in the diocese."
