Ananias Training is a two part workshop that trains people to walk with others on their journey of faith, specifically by using skillful listening and intentional conversation and questions. Inspired by the important role Ananias played in St. Paul’s journey to Christ, our Ananias Training will help people:
- recognize the stages of another’s spiritual journey through compassionate listening.
- talk about our relationship with God.
- share how we came to be a disciple of Jesus.
- share Jesus’ own story in response to the spiritual hunger of another.
Ananias Training is a process designed to form parishioners with no previous training in “the art of spiritual accompaniment.” The training will use Scripture reflections, video, and facilitated discussions to form “Ananiases.”
The goal of Ananias Training is to form a people equipped to be Ananias to one another within the Church as well as to those in the world.
