Pastoral Accompaniment (PA) Track

The primary aim of this three-part series of workshops is those working in any ministry setting, clergy or laity, whose interactions with others imply a need for mentoring skills, evangelical hospitality, ongoing pastoral interactions in the course of catechetical work, small group facilitation, parenting and nurturing ability, and intercessory prayer outreach.  Anyone who has some degree of the care of souls can benefit significantly from these workshops.  This track is divided in three areas of emphasis in pastoral accompaniment: 1) mentoring, 2) spiritual guidance, and 3) counseling.  Workshops in each these areas are not designed for professional counselors, spiritual directors, or similar niche roles, but instead for those in more general catechetical or ministerial roles to inculcate skills that greatly enhance a person’s ability to serve God’s work in others.  This track’s diverse content is also applicable to every parent, every priest, and every parishioner who understands the demanding call upon all baptized believers to love generously and serve sacrificially.

We recommend to take these courses in the order they appear, although it is not required to do so.
