Spiritual Care

Spiritual Care

Through  well designed interactions, listening, reading, music, art, mindfulness and contemplation, we strengthen awareness of the Spirit and learn the ways to discern direction.   My spiritual formation is based in Ignatian Spirituality.

The Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius

Are you looking for a way to deepen your relationship with Jesus? 


The Spiritual Exercises will be offered at St. Jude Parish-sacred Heart Church this year by trained Prayer Companions and will run from September 2023 through May 2024. There will be an overview on Sunday, August 21 at 1:30 pm in the Bishop Winter Conference room at St. Jude Parish-Sacred Heart in Shadyside to answer any questions you may have. 

Anne Papinchak, a Mother of Sorrows parishioner, has experienced the Exercises and is a Spiritual Director qualified to lead the Exercises. Contact her at if you have any questions.
