The Department of Evangelization and Catechesis will be teaming up with parishes from around the diocese to host Called & Gifted Workshops! Scroll down for information about workshop content, upcoming dates, and registration info.
What is a Called & Gifted™ Workshop?
The Called & Gifted Workshop is a one day live presentation which will include Church teaching on the laity and lay apostleship; the nature of spiritual gifts, call and vocation; and how to undertake the process of discernment.
Why should I come to this workshop?
God is calling you to a unique purpose in life, a work of love that only you can do. You have received gifts, through Baptism and Confirmation, for the ways God intends his love to reach others through you. This is an opportunity to discover those gifts, so you can put them to into practice for His Kingdom. Discern your spiritual gifts! Discern your call! What is your vocation? Come and begin to discover this work!
What will I learn?
• The role of every Catholic and of the local parish in the mission of the Church to the world.
• The critical role of charisms in the life and service of other lay Catholics and in the life of the parish or Christian community.
• The signs and characteristics of 24 common charisms.
• How discerning and using your charisms can change your life and the life of others, your parish, and the world.
