Spiritual direction is available to enhance and deepen one's relationship with God. The relationship of spiritual direction is sacred, safe and strictly confidential. Our spiritual directors can offer you the gentle encouragement to open fully to God's loving presence, and to discern the action of the Spirit in your life.
