Camino De Santiago

Along with a group very special friends, my brother Tim, and two Priests, we will be walking the Camino de Santiago in Spain beginning in August. Please friend me "Deacon Pat Kearns" on Facebook to follow the journey. I realize with limited internet, Facebook will be the easiest way to share the journey. I will share more on the blog when I return. I am also looking forward to using the experience in the current novel I am work on "Climbing Out of the Darkness."

HEROES: Youth Convention Redding CA

Diocese of Sacramento 56th Annual Youth Convention

HEROES:

Many Gifts, One Spirit
How are YOU gonna change the world?

Saturday, March 28, 2009 from 8:30am - 8:30pm
Bishop Francis Quinn Catholic Center
Redding, CA

Registration Materials: Convention 2009 Registration Information

Christ individually calls each Baptized person to discipleship; to actively build the kingdom of God.

Paul teaches in 2 Corinthians and elsewhere that a key part of discipleship is to discern the charisms of the Spirit that each baptized person receives and discover and develop them.

The goal of our day together will be to challenge each person in attendance to look closely at their lives and the gifts that they have been given.

To remind them that these "abilities" have been given for an important purpose -- to build Christ's Kingdom.

Further that each person and each gift is extremely important as we together make up the body of Christ.

We will use the lives of the saints of examples of the different charisms. Workshops will focus on how to discern and use your gifts and what we can learn from the lives of the saints about how to live as disciples today.

T-shirts and prayer cards of the saints drawn anime/graphic novel style will be produced.
