Spiritual Director Formation

St. Scholastica Monastery’s spiritual director formation program has trained nineteen spiritual directors since it began in October, 2007.

The first step in spiritual director formation is the Retreat in Daily Life (RIDL), a 30 week retreat based on the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius. During the course of 30 weeks--from October through April—retreatants live their commitment to God, to themselves and to their fellow participants by following the steps of this prayer journey.

Retreatants who decide to enter into the spiritual director formation program will study Introduction to Spiritual Direction in year 2, and Spiritual Classics in year 3, followed by two practicum years.
