Continuing Education eCourse for Vocation & Formation Ministers
September – December 2023
Mary Pat Garvin, RSM, Ph.D.
Words of Wisdom, Words of Grace -- our own experience attests to the power of words. Words of wisdom, words of grace spoken to us long ago may have lodged deep within, becoming a font of courage and inspiration in our own lives. In our current ministry as vocation and formation ministers, we desire that the words we speak offer wisdom and grace to those discerning a felt-call to religious life.
Words of Wisdom, Words of Grace is an opportunity to explore topics relevant to vocation and formation ministry alongside ministers from a variety of congregations and continents. Last year, vocation and formation ministers from 14 countries participated in this annual eCourse.
Sessions will be held on ZOOM and will include input, conversation, and small group discussion. Participation in this series includes free access to SLIConnect: Resources for Healthy Life and Ministry (https://www.sliconnect.org/), a service of Saint Luke Institute. SLIConnect is a rich resource of 100+ video courses designed to promote healthy life and ministry for members of religious congregations, ordained clergy, and all those ministering in the Church.
