Brisbane Archdiocese has launched a new web page for people searching for spiritual direction. Source: The Catholic Leader.
Recently added to the archdiocese’s website, it’s a response to public demand.
Josephite Sister Moya Campbell was receiving so many calls from people seeking the names of spiritual directors in the Archdiocese she decided to compile an up-to-date list.
At the same time, spiritual director Kathryn Robbie was browsing through the Archdiocese’s website and noticed there was no mention of spiritual directors. The women decided they would work together to help fill the gap.
They held a gathering in June last year and 42 spiritual directors attended.
Brisbane Archbishop Mark Coleridge addressed them and offered his encouragement.
He said spiritual direction was an important ministry of the Church, and expressed a desire that “spiritual direction be brought out of the shadows into the light”.
As a result of the gathering, the “Spiritual Direction” webpage was created on the Archdiocese’s website.
The webpage provides an avenue for connecting people seeking support, encouragement and companionship in their faith journey with trained and experienced professionals who offer spiritual direction as a ministry.
It gives access to the profiles of spiritual directors from various traditions enabling enquirers to connect with a companion they discern is a good fit for them.
