Oh God,

You have chosen me to live in your presence,

to accept my neighbor by avoiding criticism,

to see the marvels of life by abstaining from complaint,

to be Your servant, to become at each moment,

a peacemaker, after the example of Jesus and Mary.

Long Distance Spiritual Direction


Have you looked for a spiritual

director but have not found one?

Here's a solution ...

Our contemporary world has reached levels of communication that we could

not have dreamed of just a few years ago. Recently, we have developed a

ministry for long distance spiritual direction and retreats. The process is easy
set up, the director and the directee download a free service called Skype.
Skype provides an opportunity to have a conversation with someone on the

computer using a webcam. This service gives the directee and director an

opportunity to meet face-to-face regardless of their location. The exciting part
this ministry is that those who once felt that they could not not find a
spiritual ​director have an opportunity to receive the guidance that they desire.
Skype gives us the opportunity to  practice spiritual direction and enhance it by using contemporary forms of communication. To inquire about the possibilities of seeking a long distance director, please contact Fr. Timothy from the information on our contact page.

The best and most beautiful things in the world cannot be seen or even touched. They must be felt within the heart.
