spirituality center


The Spirituality Center was established in 1983 as the Archdiocesan Spirituality Center. Due to administrative reorganizing, it was renamed the Spirituality Center in 2002.

The Center’s purpose is to be a listening, discerning, Christian presence in the midst of a busy world; to serve as a place of information and support for those who desire to grow in their relationship with God; through its emphasis on spiritual direction, to follow in the ministry of Jesus, leading to wholeness and holiness; to welcome people of all faiths and to draw from the ancient contemplative tradition of the Catholic Church.

Spirituality Direction

The Spirituality Center provides referrals for those who are looking for a spiritual director. Each person on the list of directors for the Center has received formal preparation and training for this ministry either through the Center’s three-year program or through other programs which the Center recognizes.

Persons seeking a spiritual director may contact the center to request recommendations for a spiritual director. If you would like to be referred to a spiritual director, please call the Center or send an e-mail.

“The spiritual life is first a life. It is not merely something to be known and studied; it is to be lived.”                --Thomas Merton

“The spiritual life is the banquet, the perfume, the flowering and fulfillment of a human life, not a supernatural virtue imposed upon it.”                     --Joseph Campbell
