Spiritual direction

Spiritual direction is the ministry of supporting people in their deepening awareness of the presence and action of God in their lives. It is focused on a person’s prayer – the relationship between themselves and God.

You are welcome to contact a particular spiritual director to enquire about spiritual direction:
