OUR MISSION

StairsThe mission of the St. Joseph Prayer Center is to carry people towards our Lord Jesus, helping to remove the obstacles that would impede a true conversion, using diverse programs, courses and personal spiritual direction and inner healing in accordance with the Magesterium of the Church and in conjunction with the office of New Evangelization of the diocese of Rockville Centre.”

PROGRAMS

THE SCHOOL FOR SPIRITUAL GROWTH AND INNER HEALING and                                                              THE SCHOOL FOR SPIRITUAL DIRECTION

The purpose of the School is to establish Christ as the central relationship in our lives. We commit ourselves to Him in the deepest union, the closest companionship, and deepest service.

The program helps us to recognize and effectively deal with any blockages, wounded relationships or internal paralysis in our lives so that we may enter into the full gift of ourselves to God and to one another.


It allows us to experience the spiritual formation and inner healing necessary on the deepest levels, both psychologically and spiritually for a balanced, strong spiritual development.

During this course we allow the Lord to form bonds of Christian community at the deepest levels of friendship, mutual support, healing and the strengthening of all areas of the Body of Christ.

A firm foundation will be substantiated to those who eventually desire to minister to others as a Spiritual Director.
