“An Evening of Reflection on the Works of Mercy”
Guest speaker Judy Maten of Via Maria Consulting, LLC.
Have you ever wondered:
- How can I live a fulfilled and joy-filled life?
- Am I living to my fullest potential?
- What is God’s plan for me and how do I know I am on the right path?
Judy will introduce the Discovering Your Gifts Workshop where you will explore the answers to these questions and more!
These five session workshops will uncover how God has uniquely gifted you to live out your call to holiness, find happiness, lead a fulfilling life, and go deeper in your relationship with Jesus. During the sessions, you will learn how both your spiritual gifts given in baptism (charisms) and natural talents are discerned, activated and exercised through ministry, career, volunteer opportunities, and relationships with others. We will also delve into learning how to pray deeply to be able discern wisely.
