Enriching Ministry Days

Enriching Ministry are days for those who feel the need to enrich their ministry especially those of spiritual direction, pastoral care, supervision or prayer accompaniment. Those who appreciate the role of these ministries and would like to understand more about any of them, as well as, about the spiritual journey will benefit greatly from these days. The Centre for Applied Carmelite Spirituality (CACS) at the Carmelite Priory, Boars Hill, Oxford engages top academics, experts, leaders in the spiritual life and practitioners in the field of Christian spirituality for the Enriching Ministry Days. Participants will hear keynote speakers who will explore how these ministries can be resourced and enriched by insights from Christian and Carmelite spirituality. These days are ideal for all who wish to grow in vocational confidence, ministerial competence and theologically informed practice.

 ‘Prayer Ministers’: Frontline Workers in Scaling the Wall of Covid-19
Fr Kelvin Ekhoegbe, OCD

two-part presentation

Prayer, as taught by spiritual writers transcends space and time. In other words, God is not limited by space. As prayer ministers at a time like this, we feel handicapped and frustrated. Prayer ministers are, as it were, thrown into unknown deep water where they have the choice of either swimming or drowning. There is a growing awareness that prayer ministers are frontline “workers” in the battle against Covid-19. How has the experience of the pandemic reshaped our ministry? What deep spiritual value did we learn from this experience as frontline workers?

On this Enriching Ministry Day, in a two-part presentation, our speakers will explore these questions examining the nature of prayer ministries from its earliest origins, its mode of expressions and lessons for our ongoing Christian formation at this unprecedented times and beyond.

This presentation is part of the Enriching Ministry Day specially dedicated to prayer ministers.
