We are all called and gifted by God to fulfill a unique vocation. Through Baptism and confirmation, every christian receives special gifts from the Holy Spirit called charisms.
Discerning charisms can be a major clue in determing God's plan for your life, as well as your role in God's plan for humanity.
knowing your charisms can help you make better decisions, simplify your life, excel at work, free yourself from envy and better appreciate your family's gifts.
The Called and Gifted workshop is a tool for helping Catholics discern the spiritual gifts (charisms) they received at Baptism. Our charisms are the channels through which God chooses to enter the world. when we develop our charisms we become instruments of God's love.
The program helps people sort out their life's experiences to identify patterns that may indicate a charism. It also provides assistance in developing those charisms. Charisms are developed in drawing closer to God, intentionally seeking out situations where that charism would be needed and developing the workshop can be especially useful for:
* "Cradle Catholics" and active parishioners
* Young adults discerning career/vocational direction
* Parents in assisting children live their faith and recognise their gifts
* People in transition: changing jobs, empty nester, returning to work, facing retirement
* New or returning Catholics exploring what it means to live their faith as an adult
* Catholics discerning a call to religious life or ordination
* Parish staff and leaders who want to nurture and empower parishioners
