Support and Guidance for the Wrongfully Convicted and their Families

Lindy offers a new ministry called Lighting the Way, which is a safe place for the wrongfully convicted and their families to share their experiences and struggles. We welcome dialog and an exchange of encouragement, resources, and ideas. This page is a ministry of Lighthouse in Scranton, not a law firm or legal advocacy group, but we hope that the encouragement and support we offer here will be beneficial.

Spiritual Direction/Guidance

A chance to sit quietly together as spiritual companions, to learn how to notice and to pray in a way which helps each person deepen his/her relationship with God or the Divine. In spiritual guidance sessions, which can be done via telephone, email, or in person, encouragement and support are offered to the person who comes to help him/her to find uplift in his/her spiritual life and to expand his/her awareness of how God is working in his/her life.

Pastoral/Spiritual Counseling

Lindy receives counselees on a limited basis. She accepts persons who are highly motivated to find solutions, and strategies to help them solve difficult and painful problems in their lives. She helps people sort through grief, trauma, and transitions. She helps people to learn how to be compassionate toward themselves, and teaches people how to deal with deep emotional pain. She helps people to learn how to break old patterns that no longer work for them.

Musical Services

Lindy offers the ministry of music to church groups, weddings, retreats, funerals, nursing homes, hospices and hospitals, prisons, and in any other setting where gentle musical cheer would be appreciated.

Spiritual Retreats

As a trained and experienced spiritual director/guide, Lindy Morelli has hosted many retreats at Lighthouse. Groups come for a day retreat based on a certain theme. During group retreats, participants have the opportunity to quietly reflect on their lives and spiritual journey. They have an opportunity to grow in knowledge of themselves and in how God is speaking and moving in their lives. They enjoy uplifting conversation and fellowship with other Christians.

Persons may come for individual retreats, for a weekend or a week. During this period of time, they live at Lighthouse, and spend time in quiet prayer, rest, meditation, and reflection around a certain theme and while receiving individual spiritual guidance/companionship sessions. Retreatants who have come in the past have found this experience to be life-changing, liberating, and fulfilling.
