About "Spiritual Companioning: Call and Charism"...

Each person’s spiritual journey is a unique and mysterious experience. A spiritual companion is one who practices the art of contemplative listening, in order to assist the other in discovering God’s presence and movement in their life. Patience, compassion, and docility to the Spirit are necessary virtues for anyone who is called to be a spiritual companion.

 

About Victoria Tanco 

Victoria Tanco is a Catholic spiritual director and founder of Reditus, a ministry of spiritual accompaniment to individuals and groups.

She earned a Certificate in Spiritual Direction from the Aquinas Institute of Theology. She has a Master of Theology degree from the University of Dallas and is a freelance catechist and speaker, teaching in both English and Spanish. She taught theology at Bishop Lynch High School in Dallas. Tanco first heard the call of companioning those who had become distant from their faith, and founded a ministry to individuals returning to the church.

She has since made spiritual accompaniment her primary vocation, with the mission of helping persons of any faith tradition recognize God’s love and discern God’s will in their lives.
