The Silent Lamp Program of self-reflection and interaction for deacons in formation is a model of partnership in sensitizing the program participants to what it means to be a disciple of Christ the Servant. Program outcomes include accompanying those who are ill, discerning the spiritual significance of their stories, and linking spiritual needs with spiritual resources. This partnership between Board Certified Chaplains and the diocesan Director of Diaconal Formation is aligned with and embodies the vision presented in The National Directory for the Formation, Ministry and Life of Permanent Deacons in the United States and the Relationship-Identity-Mission Vocational Dynamic.
As a result of this workshop, participants will:
- Learn how to design and continuously improve a pastoral formation program.
- Describe and utilize the Relationship Identity Mission Vocational Dynamic.
- Initiate and develop an ongoing chaplain-diocese ministry partnership.
