Spiritual Direction and Private Retreats

Spiritual direction provides an opportunity to nurture one’s relationship with God through individual guidance. Spiritual direction is a privileged time and place to reflect with another about one’s relationship with God. The focus of spiritual direction is one’s life with God as it is lived out in daily life experiences. Suggested offering is $40 per session or what you are able to contribute.
