The Dioceses of Armagh, Dromore and Down & Connor along with a group associated with the SMA have been doing preparatory training on this for the last two years and it will be offered for the first time in Ireland as an open weekend at Dromantine on 29/30 May 2015.
This first step of the process, on Friday evening and Saturday, is a fascinating introduction to the charisms that God gives to each one in their baptism and the accompanying vocation that ensues.
It is a great opportunity for people to discover and to own the gifts and charisms given to them in their baptism.
It offers huge potential for the proclamation of the gospel and for the wellbeing of the Church, as well as a deeper sense of responding to our personal vocation.
The programme is open to all of the baptized but it will be of particular benefit to those in pastoral ministry and those interested in identifying / developing their potential role within SMA Ireland.
If you are interested in attending – and participating – please get in touch as soon as possible. If you contact us by Monday 27 April we are hoping to arrange an Early Bird rate of £35.
