What happens after Called and Gifted?


After parishioners have been through the Called and Gifted process, there are a number of paths that they might take.


Many will have more confidence and experience to use their charism(s) in their everyday lives, at work, with family and friends.  A few might realise that there are new parish activities that they would like to do, and others that they no longer feel they “need” to do, or are particularly gifted at doing.  And a few might want to get involved in serving others at a diocese-level, by joining one of the dozen teams that look at serving those most in need or in encouraging people to look at Catholicism and the meaning that will give to their lives.


There are also some groups of people with the same charism:


The diocese runs the Called and Gifted process to help parishioners serve and love others, in particular outside the parish walls.  These “fruits” can be seen through the stories and testimonies on these pages, and by many unseen ways that we act as the Lord’s hands and feet, making a difference to the lives of those we encounter every day.
