Residential Spiritual Direction Programme 

We now have two places still available on the ten-week programme from 26 April to 30 June 2017. Living and studying at the Franciscan International Study Centre, this ecumenical training programme develops the skills and experience of Spiritual Direction for those who feel called to accompanying others in their journey of faith.

For details, see our Spiritual Direction page.
