The Faith Formation Office has begun a new partnership with the Catherine of Siena Institute to offer workshops designed to build up faith and practice in Catholics as part of the new evangelization. These workshop are being offered from September 2018 through April 2019 across the Diocese of Little Rock.
Called and Gifted workshops aim to help participants discover their own charisms. A charism is gift from God to help share his mission. It is different from a natural talent that could be used selfishly. A charism is directly tied to God’s mission for you and bears fruit only because of the Holy Spirit working through you. To discover your charism is to discover what will energize your service in the Church and in the world and bear fruit according to God’s designs.
These workshops are being offered in English and Spanish this fall. The cost to attend a Called and Gifted workshop is $10 per person, which is due the day of the event. Pre-registration is required. Dates, locations and registration varies. Visit the workshop calendar and click on a workshop to register in your area.
Inspired by the important role Ananias played in St. Paul's journey to Christ, Ananias Training, is designed to help participants: recognize the stages of another's spiritual journey through compassionate listening; listen lovingly to their real questions and opinions about God in order to guide the discovery of how God is present and active in a person's life; talk about his or her relationship with God; share how he or she came to be a disciple of Jesus; and share Jesus' story in response to the spiritual hunger of another.
Ananias workshops will be offered in English only in the spring 2019. Details about cost and registration will be available soon. Visit the workshop calendar to see dates and locations to plan to attend.
