Pre-Convocation: Vocation Ministry: A Call to Be Light and Enlightened

Pre-Convocation: Vocation Ministry: A Call to Be Light and Enlightened

Pre-Convocation Workshop


Light Pre-Convocation Workshop on November 3, 2022

Vocation ministry requires shifting perspectives to see anew each encounter with inquirers and discerners and to be open to being both light and enlightened. This accompanying ministry offers vocation ministers AND communities the opportunity to listen attentively, be present and walk with – allowing the potential to arrive at a new place and to be co-creators of an emerging future.

In this time of great uncertainty and as religious life continues to evolve, a central question is how to be responsive to these new realities. This workshop will offer participants an opportunity to stop, to embrace what is means to accompany, see how resilience helps with possibility and embrace a realistic hopefulness -- what it will take for vocation ministers and communities to be light and enlightened.

Presenter
