This week I am in Chicago at Catholic Theological Union helping with a program geared toward helping young adults discerning various ministries within the Church. I am serving as one of eight mentors (fellow Religious and lay men/women) serving 58 young adults ranging in age from 18 through 32. We have visited various ministries in Chicago and heard presentations on Lay Ecclesial Ministry, the Religious Life, the Theology of Prayer and of Call, Discernment, and Healthy Sexuality. A number of the young people are already committed to entering Religious Communities; most are still discerning what the Lord is calling them to do. Wednesday evening we had supper and watched firework from a boat on Lake Michigan. The program is funded by a grant from the Lilly Foundation and is free to the participants.
