Pneuma, a two-year, ecumenical program in spiritual direction and spiritual leadership at Pittsburgh Theological Seminary is accepting applications for the next cohort. The program offers educational and supervised training of pastors and laity in the dynamics of the Spiritual Exercises of Ignatius Loyola while engaging in Reformed, Catholic, and other diverse theological perspectives on growth in faith and the Christian life.

Participants select between two tracks: spiritual direction or spiritual leadership. Spiritual direction emphasizes ministry with individuals and small groups while spiritual leadership emphasizes ministry with groups and larger institutions such as congregations, judicatories, non-profits, or corporations.

Pneuma will be hosting a time to "Come and See" Sat., Feb. 12. There is a choice of times: 8:30 a.m.-12:00 p.m.,1:00-4:00 p.m., or all day. You will hear about what the Pneuma program entails, students share about their internships, experiences in a variety of settings, and the Spiritual Exercises while making connections with others. RSVP to Dr. Martha Robbins at 412-924-1423 by Feb. 8. Please state (1) your choice of time; (2) if you’d like to have lunch with us.
