Spirita Direction

Spiritual Direction

Spiritual Direction is a ministry of holy listening in which a person meets with a spiritual director on a regular basis, typically monthly.
The context of spiritual direction is the relationship between the person and God and the content of a direction
session is the person’s prayer life and daily circumstances.

What is Spiritual Direction?

Spiritual direction is about claiming our true identity as unconditionally loved and chosen by God and deepening our awareness of God’s
active and creative presence in our lives. It is also about growing in self-awareness as we discover what promotes or inhibits our
relationship with God and thus our response to God’s invitation to be loved and to be love in the world.

Communio

We continue to offer our dynamic faith-sharing experiences of Communio Groups. These groups take small-group sharing, reflection and prayer to the next level. They allow for each member to walk the journey of faith with spiritual friends while deepening one’s relationship with Jesus. If you are interested or need more info, contact Phil Lewandowski by email at phil@stjosephavonlake.org or phone, 440-653-5638.

ENCOUNTER THE REALITY OF OUR EUCHARISTIC LORD

The Revival is a grassroots movement of Catholics, each responding to the gift of the Eucharist in their own way. 

Eucharistic Revival
Encountering the God Who Loves You

Encountering the God Who Loves You
A Self-Lead Retreat

“All Christians are invited to a ‘renewed personal encounter with Jesus Christ.’ Christ calls all people to himself in his Body, the Church, through the workings of the Holy Spirit, so that we can enter into a personal relationship with God the Father.”
