Spiritual Direction is a unique ministry.
The goal of Spiritual Direction is to help the individual name and claim their personal experience of God. Through an artful technique of examination, we assist the seeker to accurately perceive God’s presence in their lives, respond in authenticity and celebrate the transformations that occur. Spiritual Direction is a beautiful and very personal relationship between you, God and your director.
At the CSC, we believe it is essential to provide a sacred space for each person to feel safe and heard. We invite seekers to come as you are and trust that you will be honored and respected. ALL ARE WELCOME.
