Called and Gifted

Called and Gifted

Called and Gifted is a 3-step process to assist Catholics in discovering their spiritual gifts. The workshops will teach you how to develop charism discernment and how to evaluate your results.  Parishes wanting to help their intentional disciples grow in charism assessment and discernment can offer their own workshop with local, trained teachers and interviewers. For more information, visit the St. Catherine of Siena Institute website or Download the Brochure.

"Now I know that it isn’t my own impulse that moves me to do “something.”  When I use my gifts I am filled with tremendous joy and satisfaction because I see clearly the way that God is acting through me."

— Rosa Guiterrez, Director of Religious Education
All Saints, Detroit

Judith Jones

“The Called and Gifted Program gave me helpful information about my gifts and about how God has been using me to further His plans.  It also gave me greater clarity about the people around me and their gifts; and how together we can accomplish so much for the Lord.  I no longer worry about the areas where I am weak, knowing that others “have it covered.”  Now I can concentrate on the things that I am good at and do those things with great joy and energy!"

— Judith Jones, Director of Religious Education
St. Paul on the Lake Catholic Church, Grosse Pointe Farms

Christopher Gawel

“The Holy Spirit blessed me through Called and Gifted by giving me the courage to say ‘yes’ to where my charisms would be exercised and by saying ‘no’ to where my charisms wouldn’t be utilized. Talk about revolutionizing my ministry.”

— Christopher Gawel, Young Adult and Campus Ministry Liaison
Archdiocese of Detroit
