Spiritual Companionship Program
Are you serious about your spiritual journey? Do others seek you out to share intimately about their spiritual life? Do you feel “called” to offer yourself as a fellow traveller and guide to others? The Lindenwood/John XXIII Spiritual Companionship Program may be for you.
• Program is to train participants as spiritual companions
• Introduce the theory, spirituality, and practice of spiritual direction
• Learn the distinction between spiritual companionship
• The group will meet every other month for a two-day,
overnight retreat and an annual five day retreat.
These weekends are designed as time away from work and home to focus on where you are in life and in your recovery.
All recovering persons are welcome.
The focus of the retreats will be on 12-Step living and spirituality
The format includes personal sharing, use of story, group interaction, and quiet time for prayer and reflection.
A meeting will be held Saturday evening ‘round the campfire (weather permitting)
It’s a wonderful opportunity to meet other recovering people, examine your recovery program, and enhance your recovery.
Private Retreats Individuals are welcome to Lindenwood for private time to spend with God away from the demands of this busy world.
