Dear Spiritual Director,

We greatly appreciate you and your service to WestShore DeColores Ministries.  We are a family, a unique interfaith community, and you are such a vital part.  

The Spiritual Director position on the team is unique.  There are more qualifications to be a Spiritual Director than any other team position.  Because of your calling and training, we look to you to help lay sound doctrinal foundations in your talks, to help build community in the team, and to provide counseling to the team and candidates.  

Because the number of Spiritual Directors is limited, it is very important for us to keep up to date with your personal information as well as any changes to the qualification requirements.  Within WestShore DeColores, qualified Spiritual Directors fall into one of two categories – “A” or “B”.  The excerpt from the bylaws explaining these two categories is below for your information.  We are required by our bylaws to have at least one “A” Spiritual Director on each weekend.

Thank you again for your service!  You are loved and appreciated!  DeColores!
