10:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

Have you ever asked yourself… what is it that I am supposed to do with my life? What will make me happy? How can I find something that I will truly be passionate about?

These are questions that all young people (and many old people!) ask themselves – this workshop will be an opportunity to discern the answers to some of these truly important questions. We are all called and gifted by God to fulfil 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 determining 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 members’ gifts.

The Called and Gifted workshop is a tool for helping Catholics discern the spiritual gifts (charisms) they received at Baptism. This specially designed workshop for young people will include presentations, individual time for reflection/discernment, group discussions and ideas of how to continue this process of discernment.

Called and Gifted is a program of the Siena Institute offered in Melbourne in conjunction with the Archbishop's Office for Evangelisation. It is run by Clara Geoghegan, a member of the Archbishop's Office for Evangelisation. She has worked in parish ministry in the Archdiocese of Canberra-Goulburn and is currently a sessional lecturer at the Australian Catholic University and Catholic Theological College.

These workshop days are FREE and open to all young people interested in developing their knowledge and skills in youth ministry.
