Joyfully Gifted Retreat

Saturday, January 26th, 2019

9 a.m. until 3 p.m.

St. Francis Family Center

St. Francis by the Sea is delighted to offer this interactive retreat on our campus.  It is a novel approach that has successfully helped others determine the God-given spiritual and temporal gifts they already possess.

The retreat embodies the pastoral approach proclaimed in Pope Francis’ letter, Joy of the Gospel.  The heart of the retreat is the gifts discernment tool, Uniquely His, used by each participant to discover their unique charisms.

Those who come, will walk away having been confirmed in their gifts and in their discipleship.  This is an opportunity to become effective disciples in our Church, in our community, in our families, and in our workplaces.

Comments from participants:

“I learned that we all have personal gifts that we can celebrate and make available to benefit others,.”

“I came to understand that what I lean to naturally, are actual chrisms.  I should not resist them but learn to use them more fruitfully.”
