Saturday, February 8, 8:30am - 5:00pm
St. Therese the Little Flower Parish, South Bend

God has called and gifted you for a mission. When you were baptized, you were given the presence of the Holy Spirit and charisms, gifts of the Holy Spirit that enable you to be a channel of God's love, truth, beauty, mercy, healing, and provision for others. The charisms that you have been given are important clues to your God-given mission in life and Holy Spirit empowered tools to enable you to live it.

Come join us to begin the discernment process for your charisms and gain insight into your mission and purpose!

The workshop includes videos from the Catherine of Siena Institute, small group discussion, a spiritual gifts inventory, and lunch on Saturday. Participants must attend both days.

Cost: $20 (includes lunch)
