Catechetical Ministries In Motion
Annual Self-Care Retreat
The focus of the sessions for this year’s Self-Care Retreat focused on identifying and possibly rediscovering our God given gifts and renewing our commitment to our Lord to use them. The theme we used was from the movie Encanto in which a family is blessed with various gifts, and they all must work together to maintain them when things go wrong. I won’t spoil the movie for those that have not seen it.
But focusing on that theme, in working together, using our gifts, and of course, recognizing our gifts, especially in times of challenge, is a situation that may have played out several times for those that served in ministry during the pandemic and perhaps even now.
