Spiritual Direction

I see spiritual direction as discerning and responding to the Holy Spirit working in the directee's life. The emphasis is on helping the directee develop a deeper spiritual prayer life and relationship/guidance with God.

I am a graduate of the Aquinas Institute of Theology and have a Certificate of Spiritual Direction. I have had six quarters of C.P.E., a year residency at North Memorial Hospital and am in advanced standing. As a pastor/chaplain, I have given spiritual guidance for over 40 years.

Pastor Ray offers sessions via phone and Skype. For more information about spiritual direction, group spiritual direction, spiritual retreats and speaking, please call 952-237-0299 or email rrsingleton@gmail.com. Looking forward to meeting you!

What is Spiritual Direction?

“Spiritual direction is, in reality, nothing more than a way of leading us to see and obey the real Director—the Holy Spirit hidden in the depths of our soul.”
-Thomas Merton

What do Spiritual Directors Do?

"What exactly do spiritual directors do? The simple and most direct answer I can give is that they help others tend to God's presence and revelation and prepare to respond to him. In other words, they help people attune themselves to God."

-David Benner, Sacred Companions

Where is God?

"Where two or three are gathered in his name, there am I in their midst." [Matthew 18:19-20]
