Program Director - Our Lady of Florida Spiritual Center

Our Lady of Florida Spiritual Center located in North Palm Beach, FL is searching for a Program Director. 

The Passionists, a 300-year-old international Roman Catholic community of Priests and Brothers, sponsor a network of Retreat Centers in the United States and globally creating spaces for people to receive sacred hospitality and spiritual renewal.

Currently, the Passionists are seeking a Program Director at two separate Retreat Centers within the Province of St. Paul of the Cross:

  • St. Paul’s Retreat Center in Pittsburgh, PA. 
  • Our Lady of Florida Retreat Center, North Palm Beach.   

The successful candidate for Program Director will:

  • Resonate with the Passionist Charism expressed through three basic principles:
  • To assist all people to connect to the Divine presence
  • To stand in solidarity with the Crucified of Today (victims of injustice, poverty, abuse, etc.)
  • To hear the cry of our suffering earth and respond with collective action
  • Be firmly grounded in Catholic tradition as articulated by Pope Francis, particularly in the encyclicals, Laudato Si and Fratelli Tutti.
  • Practice an integrated and mature Catholic spirituality open to the ‘signs of the times’ and the movement of the Holy Spirit.
  • Be able to work with Provincial leadership in the creation of programing, rooted in the Charism, that will engage current participants, new populations of seekers and marginalized communities.  This position is a provincial appointment and is directly responsible to the Provincial and Council.
  • Be able to engender a spirit of collaboration with the local Passionist community and coordinate ministry schedules, shared facility uses and other issues that arise.
  • Be able to collaborate with mission aligned partners who will share space or be integrated into the ministry structure and operations.
  • Be able to work openly and collaboratively with evolving relationships with other Passionist Retreat Centers and ministries.
  • Possess excellent communication skills for both ministry as well as for wider public engagement
  • Have obtained a Master level, or equivalent, in Sacred Scripture, theology, or related disciplines with a strong formation in the Church’s understanding of mission.
  • Be capable of effectively recruiting and managing program staff, per diem and permanent, as well as managing budget expectations.
  • Provide an on-site leadership presence and promote effective development of teamwork and fulfillment of mission requirements.
