Do you feel called to serve as a spiritual director? Developed by Dr. Vie Thorgren, SCNA/SCLA, and sponsored by the Center for Spirituality at Work in Denver, the Vincentian Formation Program for Beginning and Experienced Spiritual Directors is now accepting applications through April 29, 2016. Our formation program deepens individuals’ abilities to serve as spiritual companions and retreat leaders. Faithful to our Vincentian Ethos, we provide a special emphasis on being present to people who are economically poor, homeless, or in otherwise marginalized circumstances. Now in its thirtieth year, our program enriches both individuals seeking initial training in spiritual direction as well as experienced spiritual directors. Need scholarships are available.
