Fr Boniface Hicks speaks about the power and gift of accompaniment and how it parallels to the work of The Catechesis of the Good Shepherd.  

Fr. Boniface Hicks, O.S.B. became a Benedictine monk of Saint Vincent Archabbey in Latrobe, Pennsylvania in 1998. Since his ordination to the priesthood in 2004 he has provided spiritual direction for many men and women, including married couples, seminarians, consecrated religious and priests, even as he completed his Ph.D. in computer science at Penn State University.  He became the programming manager and an on-air contributor for We Are One Body® Catholic radio in 2010 and has recorded thousands of radio programs on theology and the spiritual life. He has extensive experience as a retreat master for laity, consecrated religious and priests.  He became the Director for Spiritual Formation for Saint Vincent Seminary in 2016 and Director of the Institute for Ministry Formation at Saint Vincent Seminary in 2019 and has offered many courses on spiritual direction and the spiritual life. Through the Institute for Ministry Formation he is actively supporting and promoting Catechesis of the Good Shepherd. He is scheduled to graduate from the STL program at Sacred Heart Major Seminary on the New Evangelization in April 2023. He is author of Through the Heart of St. Joseph and together with Fr. Thomas Acklin, OSB he is author of the books Spiritual Direction: A Guide for Sharing the Father’s Love and Personal Prayer: A Guide for Receiving the Father’s Love, all published by Emmaus Road Publishing.
