Spiritual direction is a wonderful opportunity to pause, reflect on one’s life, and deepen one’s spiritual growth. These one-on-one conversations happen in a comfortable and confidential setting. These conversations provide participants time to reflect on the deeper questions of life, discern decisions they are facing, explore different prayer methods, and deepen their relationship with God.

Spiritual Exercises of Saint Ignatius

The exercises are a pathway to recognizing God's activity in our deepest desires and growing in unity with God. Emerging from the experience of St. Ignatius Loyola, founder of the Society of Jesus, the Exercises provide a structured opportunity to mature in spiritual freedom and make choices that are responsive to God's call in one's life.
