See God At Work In Your Life
Spiritual direction is the time-honored tradition of accompanying another person on his or her spiritual journey. Sometimes called spiritual guidance, it provides an opportunity to become more aware of the Divine’s presence in our lives through conversations that deepen our relationships with God, ourselves and each other; that explore questions of meaning and purpose — especially in times of transition; and that honors the unique unfolding of our lives. Spiritual direction is sought by those with a faith tradition or no tradition at all.

Frequently Asked Questions
NCS Spiritual Directors
Fr. Bill Ribbens, O. Praem.
Fr. Bill brings a deep wisdom to spiritual direction. He meets with directees and with those who wish to do 4th and 5th step work. “As we grow older, we become more aware, more contemplative,” Fr. Bill said. “I help people look at the Gospel and see what they find there for themselves. There is an awakening of what we hear versus what we’ve listened to our whole lives. It is a process of becoming aware of God’s love and appreciating what it means for each of us.”
Br. Steve Herro, O. Praem.
Br. Steve completed his spiritual direction training from the Franciscan Center for Spirituality (La Crosse, WI) in 2021. He began to discern spiritual direction ministry when he became more aware of Ignatian spirituality as a parishioner at a Jesuit parish from 2012-2015. Br. Steve describes spiritual direction as “the practice of accompanying another pilgrim on his or her journey to find meaning in life amidst the belief of the role of a higher power in each of our lives.”
Kathie is a spiritual director, supervises other directors, and coordinates spiritual direction at the Norbertine Center for Spirituality. She also has a special interest in contemplative prayer. “I believe being present to another person, receiving their stories with love and compassion, is one of the greatest gifts we can offer,” Kathie said. “Spiritual direction invites us to explore life’s questions, to live from a place of authenticity, and to know that we are loved by God.”
