Tara is delighted to join the Faber Institute as a Spiritual Director after nearly ten years of friendship and mentorship with Fr. Rick Ganz. She first met Fr. Ganz as a student at Marylhurst University, and eagerly enrolled in every course he offered before graduating in 2013 with a self-designed interdisciplinary degree in Holistic Ministry. Upon graduation, Tara discerned a call to be a spiritual friend to others, and completed her certification in spiritual direction with Fr. Jim Galluzzo at the Urban Spirituality Center in 2014, just three days before the birth of her first child.
As residents of Troutdale, Tara and her husband Matt enjoy adventuring in the Columbia Gorge with their three rambunctious little ones: Cirocco, Sabina and Gesumina. The Ludwig family are parishioners at St. Henry’s Catholic Church, where Cirocco is renowned for dancing exuberantly to the hymns.
