Ananias Training

Traveling with Others the Discipleship Path

Inspired by the important role Ananias played in St. Paul’s journey to Christ [Acts 9:10-19], our Ananias Training will help parishes, homes, and apostolates become places where we can:

  • recognize the stages of another’s spiritual journey through compassionate listening.
  • listen lovingly to their real questions and opinions about God in order to guide the discovery of how God is present and active in a person’s life.
  • talk about our relationship with God.
  • share how we came to be a disciple of Jesus.

Ananias Training is a 17-hour process structured over five zoom experiences and an online learning platform, 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.”

Ananias Training will be offered through zoom sessions and an online learning platform.

Cost: $35 for online access and materials
