Program targets spiritual directors

The program, "A Journey to Emmaus," begins Sept. 10 and runs through May 12, 2018.

It's designed for people wanting to become spiritual directors and others wishing to enrich their spiritual life or develop skills necessary for spiritual direction.

Zanne Ness and Claudia Dietrich will facilitate the program, which will include local and regional speakers as well as texts by contemporary authors.

Applications and recommendations must be received by April.
