Discerning My Place in the World: Identifying and Prioritizing My Values

Tuesday, Oct. 28, 2014

University of St. Thomas School of Law
MSL 242

Law school can be described in many ways. Among other things, law school is a three-year process of discerning what will be your place in the legal profession and in the world. Discernment (as opposed to decisionmaking) implies a prayerful process of determining how God is inviting you. Of determining what is your authentic calling.

Over the course of this academic year, we will offer a series of programs on vocational discernment such topics as Recognizing my Gifts, What Brings Me Joy?, Prioritizing My Values, How I Approach Decisions, and What Happens When Things Don’t Go My Way.

Each session stands on its own so that you may attend any or all of them. Each will be held from 12:30-1:30 in room 242. As lunch will be served, you will need to RSVP for each session by contacting Bethany Fletcher at moel1755@stthomas.edu.

The third session,  Identifying and Prioritizing my Values, will be held Tuesday, Oct. 28.

Subsequent sessions will be as follows:
Monday, November 24 – Getting in Touch with My Deepest Desires
Thursday, January 29 - I am Called by God
Wednesday, February 25 - How I Approach Decisions
Thursday, March 26 - Discerning Among Particular Options
Monday, April 13 - What Happens When Things Don’t Go My Way

As are all of our programs, this series is sponsored by the Holloran Center.
