Conforti Institute: Overview
Named after Guido Maria Conforti, founder of the Xaverian Missionaries in 1895, the Conforti Institute is an educational initiative of the Xaverian Missionaries. The Xaverians are an international missionary congregation working in over twenty countries in four continents.
At our modern centre in Coatbridge, we work with young people, community groups and teachers; we also provide curriculum advice and access to a wide range of resources, both material and online.
We offer courses and training based around different themes such as poverty, social justice and global development.
We also provide CPD training and Youth Ministry programmes, as well as education services for all types of religious and church groups. All courses can be tailored to your individual needs.
Our large, purpose-built centre has en-suite accommodation for up to 70 guests and we have a large conference room that can hold up to 100 people, with on-site IT facilities. A full in-house catering facility is available.

Big Lottery Fund awarded Conforti Institute the sum of £9,821 from their Awards for All programme to undertake our Global Garden project. The funds were used to redevelop the garden area at the centre to allow us to carry out some of our activities outside, particularly when we are working with school groups, and provide those who use the centre with a lovely space to relax when they visit. We are very grateful to Big Lottery Fund for their support.
