Serve, Speak, Lead: Our Baptismal Call to Be Priest, Prophet, and King
At our baptism, we were anointed to follow Christ as “priest, prophet, and king.” But what does this call mean for us in our ordinary lives and work? While some of us are priests, few would claim to be prophets or kings! Yet in this challenging time in our Church’s history, how does our baptismal call unite us, support us, encourage us, and send us out in the world to serve, speak, and lead? How might our shared calling hold the joy, hope, and strength we need to light our faith on fire today?
We have two opportunities at DMD to discuss Area Catholic Communities. The first is a lunchtime conversation. This time will be given to answer questions people have around the ACCs. The second is the afternoon workshop featuring a panel of a priest, an ACC chairperson, and a staff member from different ACCs. They will each share their experience and hopes for their ACC so far.
Other workshops include
: Burnout; where the rubber meets the road, Creating Caring Faith Communities in Minnesota: Five things you can do, Living with Integrity in Culture of Extremes, None of the Above: Reaching Disengaged Young Catholics, Radical Hospitality - Are We Ready to Be Serious about Extending Christ's Welcome, among many more.
