Bishop Don Hying

Called, Formed, Sent: The Faith-Work of Lay People

Bishop Hying

The Saint Clare Center welcomes back Bishop Donald Hying for a speaking engagement in Milwaukee! All the baptized, not just priests and sisters, are called to a life of discipleship, of holiness, of sharing in the faith and the work of the Church. Bishop Hying will discuss specific ways that Catholics can form themselves in deeper discipleship, and how we are sent out into the world to love and to serve.

Spirituality and Work:
Being Attentive to the Grace in our Responsibilities

A Garrido

Spirituality is not just about prayer and silence and church. One can also think of spirituality as the way in which God brings us into fullness of life – and our work is one key area in which God does that, forming us into the people God dreams us to be. How can we be attentive to the grace in our work, in our daily tasks, in the many responsibilities of administration? How can we allow God, through our work, to make more of us?

Ann Garrido is associate professor at Aquinas Institute of Theology in St. Louis, and author of Redeeming Administration: 12 Spiritual Practices for Catholic Leaders.
