Souljourners Inquiry Sessions
facilitated by S. Mary Elizabeth Schweiger, OSB

Souljourners is a three-year spiritual formation program for the training of spiritual directors.

If you are experiencing a call to spiritual renewal and at the same time want to learn the skills of discernment and deep listening to God, yourself, and others, let’s talk! In preparation for the 2022-2023 Souljourners Program, we are hosting the following inquiry sessions so you can learn more:

January 15, 2022, Saturday, 10:00 a.m.-11:00 a.m. (Zoom)
