What’s a spiritual director? Is it a sort of personal trainer for holiness? And is spiritual direction for all believers, or only for clergy and religious? Editor Matt Gambino and producer Gina Christian discuss what a spiritual director does, and the value of working with one — something that St. John Chrysostom Parish in Wallingford is now enabling all of its members to do, thanks to the appointment of Sister Maria McCoy, S.S.J., as the parish’s spiritual director.

Help keep Catholic media free, support CatholicPhilly.com
You may have noticed “pay walls” greeting you when you visit the websites of newspapers and magazines, both large and small. These mechanisms allow you to read a few articles for free before you’ve got to pay an annual fee if you want to see more.
You won’t find a pay wall on CatholicPhilly.com because we’re more than a news organization. We’re informing, inspiring and forming readers in the Catholic faith every day through the news, features and commentaries that we post on this site and share across social media.
It costs money to provide high-quality coverage of the local Catholic communities we primarily serve, while also distributing national and world news of interest to Catholics, plus the orthodox teachings of the Catholic faith.
Help us in this mission by making a single gift of $40, $50, $100, or more. Your gift will strengthen the fabric of our entire Catholic community.
