Description

Forty years ago, parishioners would have been able to see and identify in a given Catholic school the charism that radiated from whichever religious community was serving as the core faculty members. Today, school leaders from the laity and from professed religious communities must accept the responsibility of becoming the vessels of grace within Catholic elementary and secondary schools. In agreeing to do so, they must first prayerfully discern which charisms they have been given, and then let their prayers lead them and their schools into bold and active discipleship.

In this session, we will address the following key questions:

  • What is charism? Who receives one, and for whose benefit?
  • How, in Christian humility, can a leadership team in a Catholic elementary or secondary school, radiate its charisms in a way that indelibly stamps Catholic identity on the school?
  • If Fr. Robert Barron is right in saying that “authentic prayer leads to active discipleship,” then how should we pray in an authentic way? What will active discipleship look like?
