for spiritual directors/supervisors
meeting with pilgrims/supervisees

(current as at 23 February 2021)

  • Talk with your pilgrim/supervisee to discern the setting for spiritual direction in which you are both most comfortable.
  • Only meet in person, including outdoors, if you are both feeling well.
  • Meeting outdoors is the recommended setting.
  • Wearing a mask is highly recommended if you are meeting indoors in a home, and mandatory if meeting indoors in a public building.
  • Wear a mask indoors or outdoors if social distancing of 1.5 metres is not possible.
  • Wash your hands regularly, and cough/sneeze into your elbow or use a tissue.
  • Use a non-contact greeting such as a gentle bow or prayer posture which honours our connection. Physical contact should be avoided.
  • Keep a record of the name, time and location of those you meet in person.
  • You may meet indoors, including in homes, if you are complying with the Victorian COVID-19 restrictions of no more than 5 visitors to your home per day.
  • Ensure hygiene measures of using hand sanitiser, and cleaning surfaces such as door handles, arms of chairs, bathrooms, or cups which have been touched by a visitor. If you are the visitor, please refrain from touching unnecessary surfaces.
  • Avoid handling cash wherever possible.

Contact Ann Lock if you have any questions, or would like to talk about these guidelines.
