Disciples on Mission / Spiritual Gifts Retreat

Spiritual Gifts Retreat

“To each is given a Manifestation of the Spirit."
(1 Cor 12:7)

Spiritual Gifts Retreat

A Powerful Experience

The Spiritual Gifts Retreat is a powerful experience that enables participants to encounter the Creative Love of the Father, the Saving Love of Jesus the Christ, and the Sanctifying Love of the Holy Spirit.  


During this retreat, participants discover the power of the Holy Spirit at work in their daily lives.  They are actively engaged in discovering and uncovering the Gifts of the Holy Spirit, called charisms, given to them for their daily growth in holiness and for their mission to proclaim the Good News. During the retreat, participants will learn about their spiritual gifts and those of others and most important of all, they will learn how to use their gifts in their daily lives, for God’s Glory and the Salvation of souls.

Two Purposes

The Spiritual Gifts Discernment Journal serves two purposes for those who have initially discerned their
spiritual gifts.  


First, parish and ministry leaders can use the Discernment Journal as an interview tool with people seeking employment or volunteer ministry talents and also use the prompt to talk about the person’s spiritual gifts.


Second, the Discernment Journal can be used by an individual interested in on-oing discernment of the spiritual gifts uncovered during the Spiritual Gifts Retreat.  In this case, the person can enter the process of on-going discernment of the charisms uncovered during the retreat.  


The Discernment Journal focuses on general prompts for reflection and specific charism prompts.  The charism prompts invite people to:


  1. Describe one to three situations in which they have operated in the spiritual gift in their parish, family, career, or community

  2. Describe how they felt when they operated in the spiritual gift

  3. Describe what others have said when they have operated in the spiritual gift

  4. Describe their sense of how others were blessed when they operated in the spiritual gift     

The journal includes activities that help people further discern their highest-scored spiritual gifts by learning about them and responding to guided journaling prompts.
