Spiritual guidance/direction is available to those who are interested, and to our guests who request it in advance. On-campus, we have two priests, one deacon, and two laypeople who are available. Compensation for spiritual direction sessions is negotiated individually with the director. Please call 513-771-2171 or email for individual contact information or to make an appointment.

What is spiritual direction?

Spiritual direction is "an encounter that explores a deeper relationship with the spiritual aspect of being human. Spiritual direction helps people tell their sacred stories every day. Spiritual direction describes the ancient process of accompanying people in their spiritual journey toward freedom and peace. Meeting regularly in spiritual direction supports spiritual formation. Spiritual direction is available to people of all faiths and people who are spiritual but have no religion..."
