Pastoral Counselling

People sometimes need a listing ear or guidance for a brief period of time. The Office of Adult Faith Formation can provide or arrange for this kind of pastoral counseling.

Contact Anne Walsh, Director of Adult Faith Formation at 726-8330 or awalsh@rcsj.org

Spiritual Direction

Spiritual Direction is an ongoing relationship in which an individual or a couple explore God’s action in their lives, and grow in prayer, faithfulness, discernment and ability to serve. The Office of Adult Faith Formation can provide or help you to find a spiritual director.
