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.


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.
