Spiritual Direction

Spiritual Direction offers an opportunity to reflect deeply on your daily life and to recognize God’s presence and grace in your day-to-day life. A spiritual director is a trained person who journeys with another in a confidential manner to encourage and support the other on their faith journey.

Information about spiritual direction and spiritual directors’ contact information is available by calling the parish office. St. Francis offers a parish room for spiritual direction sessions to be held at the church. The sessions are held by appointment and a monetary arrangement is made directly between the spiritual director and directee. St. Francis does not endorse any particular spiritual director, but is a conduit for the process and for seekers.

St. Francis offers a short-term spiritual direction program called Retreat in Daily Life. It is a two or three week retreat during which a seeker has the opportunity to meet with a spiritual director several times for an intense experience of spiritual direction and an opportunity to have a retreat experience without ever leaving home. These retreats are generally held at the parish twice a year during Lent and Advent.
