Ordering Priorities

No ministry team can implement all of the possibilities for discernment ministry in their congregation at any given time. The abilities and energy level of the group ebb and flow from one year to the next.

Periodically, the team needs to meet to seek discernment for their work together, using Grounded in God as a guide. The following checklist can help groups recall areas that need to be considered:

  • Overall coordination
  • Publicity
  • Book distribution
  • Book discussion
  • Retreat and meditation opportunities
  • Work with existing parish groups
  • Discernment training
  • Discernment groups

Through discernment, those active in the program can develop a sense of what responsibilities they are called to fulfill for a specified block of time and plan how they will get the work done.
