Spiritual Counseling

The Saint Benedict Institute offers spiritual counseling for those looking to deepen their prayer life, to be encouraged in the faith, and to be mentored by a mature disciple living the Christian life. If you would like to begin spiritual counseling feel free to contact Fr. Nick, Carly, or Anna. These three individuals are happy to meet regularly with you and help to guide you on your spiritual journey.
