Charisms of Consecrated Life: Gifts of the Spirit for the Common Good
“Consecrated Life as a Charism in the Church” is Part 1 of a three-part enrichment series primarily intended for members of institutes of consecrated life and for the associates who participate in the charism and mission of an institute, for members of the ecclesial movements, and for others who participate in groups and fraternities which have sprung from a charism.
The series consists of a weekly invitation to explore each institute’s foundation event, and how the people involved in it discerned a charism of the Holy Spirit, which is now expressed in a Rule of Life.
New content is added each week. This is an online asynchronous class, and participants will be able to view prerecorded lessons and materials at their own pace through February 21, 2022.
Part 1: Consecrated Life as a Charism in the Church (register in the ‘Tickets’ section below)
Part 2: The Charism of Founders of Institutes of Consecrated Life and the Ecclesial Movements (March 14, 21, 28, 2022) REGISTER FOR PART 2
Part 3: The Rules / Statutes / Constitutions as Charism Expressions of the Gospel (May 2, 9, 16, 2022) REGISTER FOR PART 3
- For the members of institutes of consecrated life and ecclesial movements to appreciate the richness of their charisms in a deeper way.
- For the members of each institute to see their charism as one of the “flowers” contributing to and being enriched by all the other “flowers” of the whole charismatic “garden” of the Church.
- To acquire a deeper understanding of the concept and roles of “founders”, “charisms”, and how these are expressed in the Constitutions, Rules and Statutes of an institute of consecrated life or an ecclesial movement or association.
This is an online asynchronous class, and participants will be able to view prerecorded lessons and materials at their own pace through February 21, 2022.
