The Family Center’s spirituality program offers individual and group spiritual direction as well as off-site days of prayer, presentations and retreats.
What Is Spiritual Direction?
Our desire to deepen our relationship with God can benefit from sharing our experiences with faith and God in both individual and group spiritual direction. Individual spiritual direction is a one-to-one relationship between a seeker or directee (one desiring to deepen his or her relationship with God) and a guide or director (a person experienced in the spiritual life).
On the spiritual journey we often need a companion to walk with us in a prayerful, supportive relationship as we discern the direction our life is to take. A spiritual companion also helps us to become aware of the signs and movements of the Spirit in our daily life.
Group spiritual direction is designed to help nurture a community of seekers who, through monthly gatherings with a facilitator and through ongoing prayer, witness and support one another as each travels along his or her individual path.
Madeleine Lane, SSND, and a network of other caring and compassionate providers offer spiritual direction at The Family Center. For more information, please contact us at (314) 963-9600 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
