Spiritual Direction Formation Courses
In this time of somewhat confusing change, do you want to help others in their search for God? Are you a person others are drawn to confide in? Do you feel drawn to accompany others in their faith lives? If your answer is "yes" you may already be a spiritual director may be interested in training to become one. We believe there is a need for spiritual guides - people willing to walk with others in their journey of faith - in our society.
Applications for the Diploma in Spirituality (Spiritual Direction), validated by Maynooth, are accepted between January and April each year for the course starting the following September.
The course combines on-site training with long-distance supervision and mentoring over the course of a year.
This programme is complementary to the two-year course in Spiritual Direction, and offers further mentoring, specifically in directing retreats, and allows the intern to work under supervision in the contexts of Manresa’s comprehensive programme.
