The spiritual path for each human being is a sacred and precious journey and unfolding. Listening to the movements of Spirit is a life-time of listening with the “ear of the heart” (St. Benedict).


I am a Benedictine Sister living and working as a core community member of the Desert House of Prayer, a small retreat center run by the Redemptorists near Saguaro National Park West.


As a recent graduate of the Heyschia School of Spiritual Direction, I am open to directees from various backgrounds, faiths, and life experiences. Although my roots are Roman Catholic I honor other traditions.


I am a past board member of the Monastic Interreligious Dialogue. My interests include contemplative prayer, Lectio Divina, art and nature.


Spiritual direction is offered at my office at the Desert House of Prayer. Fees can be negotiated. I can be reached by phone or email: Sr. Katherine Ann Smolik, OSB at (520) 400-9263 or kasmolik2@gmail.com.
