Embracing God’s blessings... Strengths for the Journey!


Gallup research suggests that people are more likely to be engaged in their parish when they “feel that they are doing what they do best.” Saint Clement’s Strengths for the Journey program is a three session offering that provides individuals with the opportunity to discover, explore and better understand their unique God-given gifts.

Using the Clifton StrengthsFinder 1.0 Assessment ™ and the book Living Your Strengths: the Catholic Edition (Gallup Press), participants identify their themes of talent, and reflect on how they can invest in these talents to make them Strengths. Special emphasis is given to using one’s unique gifts to understand and to become the person God created each of us to be.

Strengths for the Journey currently will be delivered using the Zoom platform. Trained Saint Clement facilitators will guide participants through three 120-minute sessions. Each session builds on the previous one. Participants are encouraged to attend all three sessions.

  • Week 1— A New Beginning
  • Week 2— Gifted in Christ
  • Week 3— The Stewardship Journey
Each participant will need a (new) copy of Living Your Strengths: Discover Your God-Given Talents and Inspire Your Community. This book contains the code for the self-assessment tool that serves as the basis for Strengths for the Journey as well as resources that will be used in the discussions. There is a $20 book fee. This book can be picked up and paid for at the Parish Office during office hours. Zoom information will be sent to all registered participants.
