Spiritual Direction



The focus of spiritual direction is the directee's experiences of their relationship with God.


It is the role of the Spiritual Director to listen and accompany the directee on their journey and help them see or discern where God is present in their life.


The goal of spiritual direction is to deepen one's relationship with God by taking an intentional look at one's spiritual life and looking for the movement of God.


Spiritual Directors at Loyola are trained in the Ignatian tradition and include men, women, Jesuits, and lay ministers.
