The Blueprint of your Purpose
It`s a daily rat race; and we keep on running. The world talks about success, self-development, freedom and pushes us to pursue them. At work, at home and in our relationships, we desire happiness but what we don`t realize is that finding our God-given purpose and what intended us to be is the key to a truly fulfilled life. Find out from the blue-print of your experiences, your talents and joys, what you ought to be doing with your life.

GROWING UP (FULLNESS OF MISSION)
God, Sex and the Meaning of Life
It is both a joy and struggle as we journey through life. And, when we struggle, sometimes we ask ourselves, “Who am I? What is the meaning of life? What is my purpose?” God’s plan for us is stamped right into our bodies and understanding this plan will give us clarity of our lives, relationships and the world around us. Based on Pope John Paul II’s “Theology of the Body,” we are called to a deep understanding and living out what it means to be created male and female in the image and likeness of God. Because “we were meant to live for so much more.”
Walking the Tightrope of Life
You feel overwhelmed by daily responsibilities. You have the feeling that something is missing, something that could make life more pleasant. Your life lacks joy and seems grim and difficult. What you do fails to satisfy your craving for meaning and fulfillment. You`d love to wake each morning filled with enthusiasm for the day`s activities, but the truth is you don`t. You feel resentful much of the day, with no time for yourself. Learn how to live a balanced life then live the fullness of life Christ wants for each and every one of us.
Live the Fullness of our mission. Take on the challenge to bring Christ to where the singles are. Go the extra mile to know the need of Christ in the Call Centers and dare to make a difference. Boldly and creatively bring the light of Christ in the call centers. Find out how to do it and make the first move. Jesus is calling you.

OUR EARTH. OUR HOME.
Polar ice caps are melting. Sea level is rising. Weather pattern is changing. Our earth is heating up and time is clicking. Although world leaders are trying to help stop global warming, we can do too! Small actions repeated frequently have the most impact! We need to educate ourselves about global warming and how we can play a crucial role in healing our wounded planet. After all the earth is everybody’s responsibility.
Its time to focus on our socio-political responsibility to the country`s pressing issues. Being Catholic or SFC specifically, know our community`s response or action. This workshop will make you understand your role as electorate and citizen of this country.
