Institute events coming up in the near future:
1)  Fr. Mike will be preaching a mission in Riverside, California beginning on Sunday evening that has a strong Pauline theme:
"Christ lives in me" is the audacious claim of St. Paul, whose experience of conversion on the road to Damascus changed the direction of his life. That intimate union Paul experienced is what Jesus desires for each of us; a union as close as that of a vine to its branches. In our parish mission, Fr. Michael Fones, OP, co-director of the Catherine of Siena Institute, will reflect with us on the radical nature of Christian discipleship using scripture and stories that may help you accept the invitation to radical discipleship.

Don't tell him that I said so but Fr. Mike is a great preacher and this is a theme very close to his heart.  If you are in the area, you won't want to miss it.

2)  Meanwhile we are putting on a one day Catholic School teacher version of the Called & Gifted workshop on Monday in Sugarland, Texas.  The fabulous Barbara Elliott will be presiding.

3)  Our Australian team is facilitating Discernment in Depth - part two of the Called & Gifted process which includes the personal interview, personal exploration, and small group work in east Melbourne at the Thomas Carr Centre in six evening sessions.

4) And those of you would like to be trained to facilitate the discernment of others can attend our interviewer and facilitator training February 21 and 22 in Corpus Christi, Texas.

That's us all over.
