More Information

What is spiritual direction?

Spiritual direction is a “gathering together” of two in the name of Jesus, the spiritual director and the directee, to help a person develop a closer relationship with God and to better discern how the Holy Spirit is leading them in their life.


Who is a spiritual director?

A spiritual director is a skilled, compassionate listener who is interested in your spiritual journey and is committed to holding all discussions sacred and confidential.

A spiritual director is also trained and certified in Spiritual Direction through one of a number of programs recognized by the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston.

A director is knowledgeable about Christian tradition and human development.

What is the responsibility of the one seeking spiritual direction?

A Directee comes to the sessions with an open heart, desiring and listening for the guidance of the Holy Spirit and a willingness to commit to deepening one’s relationship with God through prayer.

Directees can share their prayer experiences and personal challenges and questions with the director, who will help them to see how God may be working in their lives.

What do you talk about in Spiritual Direction?

You will talk about prayer, about ways we communicate with God and the ways He communicates with you. The director will listen for God’s presence in your day-to-day life and help you become more aware of God’s grace in your life. The director listens, discerns, prays, and reflects back to you what is heard.

Is there a fee?

The ministry at Prince of Peace is a service to the community. The spiritual directors at Prince of Peace volunteer their time and do not personally accept compensation, and adhere to the Archdiocese’s guidelines for Ethical conduct.

The time commitment of Catholic spiritual directors varies, but it typically involves regular meetings or sessions with individuals seeking spiritual guidance, with the duration and frequency depending on the needs of the person being directed.
