Here’s what our students said about this course:

“The spiritual direction program has expanded my thinking about God, spirituality and how very different we all relate to Him. My awareness of the innate value of, and compassion for each person has grown. I also have developed even more thirst for drawing closer to God and helping others to connect with Him. I highly recommend this program.”

“Checking out the new Emmaus SSD pilot was the beginning of a wonderful path. I am very grateful to be in the 4th course, graduating next year! Life was busy but God knew I needed this learning opportunity. I am so grateful for the depth of the program, supportive classmates and teachers. I will be sorry when it’s over, but look forward to all the Lord has ahead.”
