Internal and External Forums in Seminary Formation

$25.00

Rev. Denis Robinson, OSB, discusses the question of the use of internal versus external forum in seminary and religious formation.

Product Description

Overview

Rev. Denis Robinson, OSB, discusses the question of the use of internal versus external forum in seminary and religious formation. Participants will: (1) understand the distinction between internal and external forum; (2) learn how keeping issues only in the internal forum can limit the discernment of vocation and celibacy on the part of both the candidate and the community or diocese; and (3) identify strategies for overcoming resistance and moving candidate issues from the internal to external forum. The presenter also explores the generational differences impacting perception of this important issue.

Who Should Participate

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.
