2017 Leadership Ministry Discernment
Nominations Accepted July 2nd-23rd
The discernment process begins with the parish. Parish members are invited to call forth those individuals whom you have identified as possessing leadership skills. Nominations can be placed in the specified box in the gathering space.
An invitation to the discernment meeting will be sent to all nominees on July 26th. Those who attend (on August 9th) are given an opportunity to be attentive to the Spirit’s promptings in their life through group dialog and individual expression. This process allows just enough reflection time for each person to consider their talents/gifts and whether the tasks and time involved can be balanced with other responsibilities.
Near the end of the time gathered nominees again have the opportunity to put forth their name for consideration in specific leadership positions of their choosing or choose to not place their name for consideration.
