Individual Spiritual Direction
Individual Spiritual Direction is offered by the Center for Spirituality. This is a practice of sitting with another and making time and space in one’s life to talk about one’s life story, discerning how God is working in one’s life and/or where and how one is being called. Some people come for spiritual direction regularly on a monthly basis and others come for a shorter period of time if they have had a major change happen in their life or the life of a loved one, an important decision to make, or simply need a listening ear and safe space to share their story. Please contact Amy Jobin in the Center for Spirituality if you are interested in receiving spiritual direction at firstname.lastname@example.org or call X3167.
Have you received some but not all of the sacraments? Have you thought about receiving the Sacraments of Eucharist or Confirmation? The Center for Spirituality will be offering sacramental preparation again in the Spring 2014 semester. At that time, there will be classes and retreats to prepare students for receiving the Sacraments. To register or for more information, contact Amy Jobin at email@example.com.

Center for Spirituality Interns
A team of five student interns works with the Center for Spirituality Staff to help understand the spiritual needs of NDNU students and to assist in creating opportunities for the student community to engage in liturgy and prayer, social justice, spiritual growth programs, and foster a deeper understanding of the Notre Dame Hallmarks. Students on the team are asked to serve for a minimum of one year and to have a desire to grow spiritually in their own life. Persons of all faith and spiritual traditions are invited to apply to become a part of the team. Applications for the intern positions are due August 24, 2012. Please e-mail your completed application to firstname.lastname@example.org.
