Rev. David Songy, O.F.M.Cap., S.T.D., Psy.D., explores the nature of celibate chastity and how it is informed by the particular charism of a religious order.
Celibate chastity in the Catholic Church has many expressions: priesthood, consecrated virginity, religious life and the single life. Rev. David Songy, O.F.M.Cap., S.T.D., Psy.D. explores the nature of celibate chastity and then distinguishes the particular expressions of chastity in religious life and how this may be addressed in formation. After reviewing several specific examples of distinct qualities in expressions of celibate chastity in religious orders, participants will consider a process for developing this aspect of the formation curriculum.
Priests, deacons, men and women religious, lay ministers, and those involved in vocations, formation, or clergy and ministry personnel needs.
This workshop was presented at the Practical Models for Celibacy Formation conference, sponsored by Saint Luke Institute and Saint Meinrad Archabbey and Seminary and School of Theology. Browse other presentations from the conference here.
