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.
Priests, deacons, men and women religious, lay ministers, and those involved in vocations, formation, or clergy and ministry personnel needs.
