New workshop on accompaniment offered in October

The Art of Accompaniment and Discernment

The Art of Accompaniment and Discernment—a new workshop—will be offered October 21-23 at the NRVC Fall Institute in Leavenworth, Kansas.

This workshop offers vocation directors insights on how to accompany young people as they consider their calling to whatever way of life is theirs. This ministry need was a major message of the 2018 synod on young people, faith, and vocational discernment.

Four professionals will reflect on their experiences and insights on the topic. The second day of the workshop will focus on cultural and ethnic influences on vocation discernment.

The following people will be presenters:

Sister Thu T. Do, L.H.C. is a research associate at the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate who has conducted research on international sisters.

Father Tom Gaunt, S.J. is executive director at the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate and has been involved in several studies related to religious life and vocations.

Dr. Charlotte McCorquodale is president of Ministry Training Source, which aids with formation of ministry leaders.  

Sister Mary Rowell, C.S.J. is vocation and candidate director for her congregation and board president of the National Association of Vocation and Formation Directors (in Canada).
