Lori Jean Wilson

I have been in the Catholic education world for the past 30+ years as a director of religious education, theology teacher, theology chair, director of campus ministry and service, principal, and as pastoral associate.

My experience in ministry has led me to walk with those who are seeking a deeper connection with our God who is present in all aspects of our lives. It’s a joy to be called to this ministry and to have the opportunity to respond to this call.​

Yours in Christ,

Lori

Ignatian Spiritual Director & Supervisor 

Background and Formation:

I have been in the Catholic education world for the past 30+ years as a director of religious education, theology teacher, theology chair, director of campus ministry and service, principal, and as pastoral Associate. I felt God calling me to something a bit different in 2016 when I began formal training as a Spiritual Director in Ignatian Spirituality. I am a mother, and grandmother and have a rich family life.  My experience in ministry has led me to walk with people within the Catholic faith and those who are not Catholic, all seeking a deeper connection with our God who is present in all aspects of our lives. It’s a joy to be called to this ministry and to have the opportunity to respond to this call.​
