God has given each Christian two important gifts: the gift of faith in Jesus Christ and the gift of the Holy Spirit through Baptism and Confirmation. These gifts are to be used to unify the Body of Christ and to promote the growth of the Kingdom of God. As with other gifts, it’s impossible to fully appreciate and make use of our spiritual gifts until we’ve opened them. Together we will explore and discern our spiritual gifts (healing, teaching, prophecy, knowledge, etc…) and how we are called to use them for the Kingdom of God. This retreat is open to all young adults (18 to 39 years). The retreat fee is $75.00 and will be collected (check or credit/debit) at check-in. If you need financial assistance please see a YouFra team leader.
The Called and Gifted Retreat will take place at The Franciscan Renewal Center (The Casa).
