We wanted to let you know in advance about this fall’s Called and Gifted workshop that St. Joseph Educational Center and Ss John & Paul Parish will be co-sponsoring on Saturday, October 18, from 8:30 am – 4:30 pm. Lunch is included, a free will offering will be taken, and registration is required by October 15.
Come learn about our common mission to the world as Church, our role in that mission, and our spiritual gifts” given for the common good” (1 Corin 12:7). Parish leaders, council members, catechists, ministry volunteers, young adults, parents, and grandparents, single and divorced people, new and returning Catholics — all are welcome!
The interactive day will include Church teaching on the laity and lay ministry, the nature of spiritual gifts, call and vocation, and how to undertake the process of discernment. An application segment at the end of the day will offer insights and resources for how to begin sharing our gifts in the parish, community and beyond. Author and speaker Mary Sharon Moore of the Catherine of Siena Institute will facilitate the workshop.
