A program for people with at least five years’ experience in EREA schools or Edmund Rice communities
This two-day, residential program provides participants with the opportunity for personal reflection, affirming conversation and renewed focus for the continuation of their journey. The program celebrates the wisdom and insight gained from ministry in an Edmund Rice community, and invites participants to integrate their personal story with the stories of our tradition to encourage their ongoing contribution.
A Call to Transformation offers participants opportunities to explore those special spaces in life that have provided a glimpse of God’s presence and to apply the vision of the Gospel in being attentive to the needs of others.
The program draws upon the story of Moses’ encounter with the burning bush in Exodus (3:1-12). After “turning aside” from his everyday work, he is called by God to respond to the pain and suffering of his people. As agents of transformation in the world, we too are called to pay attention to the needs of those who struggle in our communities and beyond.
