Spiritual Direction

What Is It All About?

It is a mutually agreed upon, One to One relationship in conversation and prayer. It is directed toward deepening intimacy with God helping the person who journeys, to discern the presence and leading of the Spirit of God – the One Jesus sent as our true Spiritual Director. David Benner

Simply put, spiritual direction is helping persons tell their sacred stories everyday – Liz Budd Ellman 

Spiritual direction is the contemplative practice of helping another person or group to awaken to the mystery called God in all of life and to respond to that discovery in a growing relationship of freedom and commitment. – James Keegan, SJ

Who Needs It And Why?

The widespread interest in spiritual direction among lay persons, religious and clergy is a thought-provoking paradoxes. There is a widespread QUEST for personal authenticity through experienced interiority.

Somehow we must BE something meaningful if anything we do is to be genuinely significant. S M Schneiders, IHM

  • I need to better my relationship with others.
  • I want to know God’s plan for me.
  • I desire and need spiritual support and help.

  • I have a deep longing to draw closer to God.
  • I don’t know why I am feeling like this…
