Spiritual Direction is a one on one conversation about your life with God.  With the accompaniment of a spiritual director, you learn to deepen and enjoy your relationship with God, and to be more aware of God’s presence and action in all the events of your life.  Call to make an appointment.


Francis House offers a variety of Monthly Series that meet from  September to May. We would love to have you choose one that meets your need for on-going spiritual growth.  These are so helpful in providing good content, a little structure for your life with God, and an enjoyable sense of community.
