Formation in Discernment
We train priests, seminarians, and parish and diocesan leaders at all levels to facilitate the discernment of charisms and personal call at the parish and to create a Catholic culture of discernment where it is “normal” for many Catholic adults to be asking “What is God calling me to do with my life?”
Called & Gifted Workshops (We have versions of the C & G process adapted for parishioners, parish and diocesan staff, Catholic school teachers, DREs and catechists, diocesan priests, seminarians, religious congregations, and young adults.)
Interviewer Training: Learn how to faciliate the discernment of charisms one-on-one and in small groups.
Called & Gifted Teacher Training: parishes and dioceses around the country are developing their own Called & Gifted teaching teams.
