WHAT IS SPIRITUAL DIRECTION?
Spiritual Direction is a monthly one-on-one conversation about your life with God. With the accompaniment of a spiritual director, you learn to deepen and enjoy your relationship with God, and to be more aware of God’s presence and action in all the events of your life. Call (609) 877-0509 to make an appointment. Donation: Love Offering.
ENRICHMENT PROGRAM FOR CERTIFIED SPIRITUAL DIRECTORS
9 Thursdays 1:00 – 4:00 PM
September 28 December 21 March 21
October 26 January 18 April 25
November 30 February 15 May 23
Those who care for others also need to care for themselves. Those who help others pray also need to take time to be nourished. This monthly gathering will provide just that:
time for prayer, sharing and peer supervision to enrich and nourish the gracious listeners who give themselves so generously as spiritual directors. We will read Ignatian Discernment of Spirits for Spiritual Direction and Pastoral Care by Mark Thibodeaux, SJ between sessions. Led by S. Marcy. Donation: $225.
