Spiritual Direction & Retreats

Are you interested in growing spiritually? Many people experience a desire for “something more” or say they have a “hunger for God.” A spiritual director is a companion on a spiritual journey who is trained to assist individuals to reflect on his/her own life, to keep in touch with their inner longing, and to help them grow closer to God!  Setting time aside for God each day, engaging in spiritual readings, developing Christian friendships and participating in liturgies help us deepen our relationship with God and can be part a faith journey. Spiritual direction appointments last for one hour and are usually scheduled every 4-6 weeks.
