Spiritual Direction

 

The primary focus of spiritual Direction is on deepening your relationship with God and growing in an awareness of God's living presence in the ordinary events of your life. This leads to an even deeper and more realistic understanding of who you are in relationship to God, yourself and others.

 

Your spiritual director listens, asks questions and offers suggestions to help you grow in prayer and relationship.  This conversation allows you to discover your own inner voice and wisdom from God deep within.

 

Spiritual direction gives you an opportunity to share your story and faith journey. Regularly scheduled visits allow for ongoing attentiveness to you personal experience, thus uncovering the ways by which God speaks to you and invites you to a deepening union.
