Whole Hearted Living in the "Too Much" of the Diocesan Priesthood & Diaconate

Human Formation - Paul Ruff

Date & Time:

Wednesday, July 25, 2018
12:00 PM - 4:00 AM


St. Charles Borromeo parish, St. Anthony, MN

Paul Ruff of the Saint Paul Seminary will present. The life of a diocesan priest or deacon can feel like "too much" yet their are some who, in spite of set-backs,  seem to engage life in a vulnerable and vibrant manner with a clear vision. We will explore the dynamics and struggles that can lead to feeling overwhelmed and "burnt-out" including self-limiting thoughts, beliefs and coping strategies. Then borrowing from spiritual wisdom and up-to-date research findings, we will develop an awareness of some protective  dispositions and practices, consonant with a Catholic vison of man, that can help clergy engage life in a whole hearted and resilient manner.
