Fr Gerry Campbell, Marie Maguire, Helen Stewart and Tony Hanna were part of a training workshop in Newry Pastoral Centre last weekend. It was provided by the Catherine of Siena Institute on the Called & Gifted programme. The facilitator was Katherine Coolidge who came all the way from Los Angeles to be with us at the workshop.
This is a fascinating programme that helps participants to recognise and to subsequently use charisms that God has given to them. Every baptised person has at least one charism but many of us go through life without knowing what charism/s we have been given. Together with the dioceses of Dromore and Down and Conor in partnership with the SMA we will be offering this workshop over a weekend at the end of May 2015. More details will appear at a later date on the website.
