Spiritual Direction Ministry Blessing (In Person)

Spiritual Direction

Saturday 05/21/2022
10:00am - 12:00pm EST

This year's Spiritual Direction Ministry Blessing is a special gathering for all spiritual directors.

Please join us Saturday, May 21, to celebrate our collective ministries and to offer a Dominican blessing as we welcome newly certified Spiritual Directors from this year's Practicum II class.

The safest thing is to want only what God wants. Let’s place ourselves in His hands so that His will may be done in us.
~ St. Teresa of Avila

The heart of the practice of spiritual direction is that we deeply believe God is present in all individuals and every experience of life. The heart of our shared ministry is trying to notice, touch, experience, and act out of that shared connection. Be with us as we extend sacred hospitality to our brothers and sisters as they join our faith community.

At this celebration, Spiritual Directors certified in May 2022 will receive a special ministry blessing from all practicing directors and Dominican Sisters ~ Grand Rapids.

The Spiritual Direction Ministry Blessing will be held in person at Dominican Center's new home at Aquinas College. The entrance and free parking can be found at 1700 Fulton Street East, just west of Marywood, in Grand Rapids.

See COVID precautions and guidelines.
