Spiritual Direction 

Franciscans have long recognised the centrality of Spiritual Direction to the Christian life, and here at the Franciscan International Study Centre we have a well-established expertise in the training of Spiritual Directors and the provision of Direction. We currently offer two different training programes: 

   Ecumenical Training Programme in Spiritual Direction (one year, part-time)

 Resident Spiritual Direction Training programme (24 April – 30 June 2017) 




Our Spiritual Direction training was the subject of this article in The Tablet
