Discernment In Christian Initiation

One Day Workshop

The Rite of Christian Initiation of Adults invites several moments of discernment as those contemplating a major step attempt to discover the direction to take. Beneath the liturgical celebrations of embracing Catholicism, catechumens and candidates, adults and children, wrestle with personal questions:

Is God truly calling me? Am I called to join this community? What in my attitude and behaviors is holy, and what needs to change? How am I being invited to let go and open myself to God’s love?

In this workshop, participants will come to a better understanding of the process of discernment, how it is experienced, and how it facilitates conversion. Together, we will consider listening skills and learn more about the right questions to be asked at the right time. During the day, the presenters will give concrete suggestions for interviews during the four stages of the catechumenate, and offer a format for a discernment day before the Rite of Election.
