We are offering our exciting new Making Disciples seminar three times this summer and we are even more excited to be able to offer some serious discounts to parishes or groups that send more than one person! The more leaders in a parish get the vision and have the skills, the faster we can start fostering cultures of intentional discipleship in our communities.
$50 off a second attendee if you have separate rooms
$80 off the second person if you share a room.
$100 off/per person for the 3rd, 4th, 5th (or more!) attendees (Bring 8 and the 8th person is free!)
What is Making Disciples about?
The key to intentional discipleship is a critical part of catechesis and formation that seldom happens in the Catholic pastoral practice: thoughtful pre-evangelization and an initial proclamation of Christ that asks for a deliberate personal response.
Making Disciples is a four day seminar (Sunday evening through Thursday at noon) that will help participants
·Understand intentional discipleship and that it is the normative source of spiritual life, and thus the ultimate end of all pastoral ministry.
·Understand why initial discipleship precedes catechesis and how life-changing catechesis and formation builds on discipleship.
·Learn how to listen for and recognize pre-discipleship stages of spiritual growth.
·Learn how to facilitate the spiritual growth of those - whether baptized and “active” or not - who are not yet disciples.
·Learn how to articulate the basic kerygma that awakens initial faith in a gentle and non-threatening way.
·Learn how to use these skills in a wide variety of pastoral settings: RCIA/inquiry, adult faith formation, sacramental prep, spiritual direction, pastoral counseling, or gifts and vocational discernment.
·Have an opportunity to prayerfully reflect on their own journey toward discipleship.
The full seminar will be offered
June 8 - 12 in Benet Lake, Wisconsin
July 27 - 31 in Colorado Springs, Colorado
August 10 - 14 in Spokane, Washington

I will be doing a two hour rif on Making Disciples at the Evangelical Catholic Institute in Madison, WI again this year. (Where I'll get to hear Fr. Robert Baron and Francis Beckworth. Not shabby, that!) We've presented the basic ideas 5 times in 5 different configurations so far and every time people say it has changed their own spiritual lives and how they regard and go about ministry.
We'd love to have you - and your friends - be part of the conversation!

If your destination is on the Northeast Corridor, this isn't a big deal (departures are every hour) but in other parts of the country the next train may not be until tomorrow. If your reservations involved sleeper accommodations (Amtrak's First Class on their long-distance overnight trains) on either your late-arriving train or your missed connection, you will get a hotel voucher for the unplanned overnight stay. Customer Service will commonly offer travel vouchers of $100 or more off future Amtrak travel to inconvenienced passengers. This is true for all classes of service. If you plan to board an Amtrak train at a location other than the train's initial place of departure, it's usually a good idea to call ahead before you leave for the station to see if the train is running on time.

She gets no reward, but the son gets free cable, food, sleeping until noon and no curfew. I don't see any change and am now having to make the hard decisions for my own life, which don't include any of the ongoing drama. My BF and I both agree that his son could not move into my home (which would ultimately be our home), so I am left to wait.
