Catholic Spiritual Mentorship Program


“My dream for the Archdiocese is to be able to awaken in the hearts of many a yearning for holiness. If we are able to succeed in this area, we will need an army of spiritual mentors who will be trained to help guide and assist others in developing a rich life of prayer. I am very grateful for the presence of the Apostles of the Interior Life in the Archdiocese with their special charism and expertise in the area of spiritual direction. I am thrilled with their willingness to help form others to be spiritual mentors.”

- Archbishop Joseph F. Naumann

In collaboration with the Apostles of the Interior Life, Holy Family School of Faith Institute offers a two-year course of study combining eight distance learning courses with four one-week intensive sessions offered in-residence at Savior Pastoral Center in Kansas City, Kansas. The program aims to form Spiritual Mentors to serve as guide and companion to others on their journey to holiness. It is designed for Catholics who have a desire to develop a deep prayer and sacramental life, to increase their knowledge of the Catholic faith, to grow in the virtues and a desire to help others do the same.

Intensive sessions are located at Savior Pastoral Center Archdiocese of Kansas City in Kansas.

The cost for each session is $1,750, a total of $7,000 for the 2-year program. This includes all the courses in the session,
course materials, room and board during the session.
