Sr. Marie Grogan - FMDM Spiritual Direction Team

I am a sister of the Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood since 1968. After my initial religious training, I entered the field of Nursing, Midwifery and Nursing Administration and served in rural Zambia, Ireland, and England. While in Ireland I also trained in Spiritual Direction at Milltown Institute and Manresa Spirituality Centre, Dublin and I have accompanied people ever since wherever I have been.

After leaving the health field I studied for a Theology Degree at Regis College, Toronto, Canada where I also did a Diploma in Spiritual Direction and a course in Supervision. Following this I was fortunate also to take part in a Franciscan Internship Programme, which introduced me to Franciscan Theology and to the Franciscan nuances in Spiritual Direction.

I currently live in St. Clare’s Community, Ladywell, in Godalming, England and I look forward to working in the new Franciscan Centre in Spiritual Direction and Retreat Ministry.
