In each year of the two-year Spiritual Direction & Leadership Program, a cohort of participants attendsthree residential Intensives.

  • Each residential Intensive lasts three to five days.
  • Between some residential sessions, we meet as a learning community in an online forum. 
  • Residential Intensives are held at Martina Spiritual Renewal Center in the Greater Pittsburgh Area.

‚ÄčYear Two
Participants meet for three more residential Intensives in the same format as in Year One. They also begin their Internships, and have ongoing assessments of the skills and dispositions required for spiritual direction and spiritual leadership.

Year One

At each of three residential Intensives during Year One, participants meet for prayer and worship, presentations, discussion of required reading, small group practice of spiritual direction and development of leadership skills in spiritual formation.
