Join Sister Noel Toomey, OP for three two-hour sessions on the basics of spiritual direction. The sessions will focus on the purpose of spiritual direction, its difference from pastoral counseling, catechesis, and faith companioning as well as guidance on how to prepare for spiritual direction. These sessions are for those currently going to spiritual direction who want to review and renew their approach to this discernment conversation and those who are considering beginning a spiritual conversation.
