The Archdiocesan Spirituality Center is committed to nurturing the spiritual growth of the clergy, religious and laity of the Archdiocese.

The Center is dedicated to the ministry of spiritual direction as a means of encouraging this spiritual growth.

All relationships develop as two persons pay attention to one another. This also holds true to your relationship with God.Spiritual direction seeks to enable a person to be more attentive to God. It isa conversation in which the director helps the directee to grow in his/her relationship with God by noticing how God is revealed through the unique circumstances of the directee’s everyday life and prayer.
