An exploration of Longing through contemplative silence, prayer and kerygma. This day seeks to prepare space and time for attendees to ponder the layers of individual and communal aching. This will be a day of prayer, discernment and guided movements to uncover the complexity of what lies in the depths of the heart.

Nurturing. After a prayerful reflection of our deepest longings, the ability to nurture the extent of our aching will be available through and with the community. Recognizing the face of Christ in the diversity of our humanity, manifested through various cultural, generational, and spiritual approaches, our communion with one another is strengthened and our hearts are nurtured. With honest inquiry, participants will be invited into the sacred threshold of the other, of Jesus Christ in our very midst. The vision attempts to include marginalized voices and underrepresented faces, inspiring and creative leaders, paralleled as educators and informers of the mission of catechesis and evangelization.

By the third day of the conference, there is a dramatic shift in the work of the participant; moving from discernment to action. The theme for Wednesday is Preparing. With intentional facilitation processes, NCCL aims to foster opportunities for members to explore difficult and necessary conversations with their colleagues, both at the local and national level, including pastors and bishops. A two-fold track experience will provide reserved time to explore the unique circumstances and internal structures of our community of faith that inhibit the potential of sharing the gospel in today’s world. With guided facilitation of visionary leadership, there will be a juxtaposition of what stifles and where the Spirit is inspiring change; truly an experience of Pentecost for today’s disciples.
