Spiritual Directors

Invitation to Grace

Spiritual direction is a ministry of contemplative presence, an ongoing process of self-discovery and deepening relationship with God. In confidential, one-on-one meetings between a qualified director and a directee, the relationship focuses on guidance in recognizing and responding to God’s moment-by-moment presence in the directee’s life. As unique as the individuals involved, each relationship honors the diversity of the human spirit and the myriad ways in which God offers grace and love.
