Along with Mayra Torres and Sherry Wagner, I attended the second national convocation of the "C3 Initiative." C3 stands for Creating a Culture of Calling. St Charles is one of 24 Christian congregations involved in the project which seeks to "promote a congregational culture of vocation that helps Christians of all ages discover their callings throughout life and equips them to live their vocation in the church community, at home, and in the world."
The primary focus of this meeting was to draft an action plan for the first year of the project. Here is a short summary of our draft action plan. (Note: we need to discuss the plan further with the entire C3 Team along with other key leadership groups in the parish, e.g. staff, GIFT, Multicultural, etc.)
As part of our initial working on creating a culture of calling St. Charles, the C3 team is taking every opportunity to listen to folks reflect on their experience of God's call in their lives. We would like to hear from you! Please take a moment to respond to the questions below. Your comments will remain anonymous, and they will help us form our strategies and plans for the future. Thanks so much.
