Program Schedule

You will get an invitation to an introductory webinar in September. From October through May, on the first Tuesday of each month beginning at 7:00pm, a synod-wide webinar will introduce a 90-minute lesson on a spiritual life and prayer practice with additional time for Q&A. In the middle of the month, you will meet with a small group led by a certified spiritual director for two hours somewhere in the general vicinity of your community. The location, date and time will be determined by each small group. Where a small group cannot be accommodated in your general vicinity or when a small group decides not to meet in person due to the coronavirus pandemic, online opportunities will be made available.

  • Attend the spiritual direction group in your area or online.
