School of Spiritual Direction

The Immaculate Conception Center, in partnership with Franciscan University of Steubenville, is offering a three-year intensive training program for individuals who feel called to serve as Spiritual Directors. We invite you to prayerfully consider joining our program to begin accompanying brothers and sisters in Christ on their journey with our Lord.

The certification program is a three-year commitment. Upon completion students will be certified by the Franciscan University of Steubenville to offer individual spiritual direction through affiliating with a parish, a retreat center, a Newman Center, or a ministry sponsored by a religious order or church organization.
