Equipping for Pastoral Ministry - Priests Only

Equipping for Pastoral Ministry - Priests Only

This five-day retreat provides priests with an interactive week, designed to enrich and animate their ministry. Using the text of Dr. Bob’s book ‘Be Healed’, along with the ‘I AM’ ministry training, you will experience a week filled with personal healing and practical ministry application.

You’ll gain valuable insight into leading the hearts of those you serve toward a deeper relationship with Jesus and, ultimately, a deeper faith. Some of the content components include:

  • Sharing in Jesus mission
  • Trees-Roots and Fruit of sin and healing
  • Anatomy of wounds
  • Inspiration, Abiding and Moving with God

Anchored firmly in Church teaching, you will reflect on Jesus' relationship with the Father and Holy Spirit as the foundation of your own vocation, as well as your ministry. You will have opportunities to receive personal prayer ministry, journaling, priestly brotherhood while learning to minister deeper healing within the Sacrament of Reconciliation, in spiritual direction, as well as in other pastoral ministries. Additionally, there will be opportunities for recreation, daily Mass, and Adoration. 

The teachings will be led by Dr. Bob Schuchts and members of the center staff.
