Spiritual Direction

You have a sacred story. God already knows your heart.

Spiritual direction helps you to explore your spiritual side. Spiritual direction helps us:

  • learn how to live in peace with ourselves and others.
  • walk with compassion.
  • promote justice.
  • pray deeply and widely.

Why seek spiritual direction?

  • To name and trust your own experience of God.
  • Deepen your prayer.
  • Listen to God speaking within.
  • Discern and make choices.
  • Grow!
  • And always the real director is God!

Spiritual direction can be arranged on a one-time or continuing basis. For more information, contact Sr. Mary Noel, OP at marynoel@charter.net.
