Prayer, reflection, Scripture, and our Catholic Tradition can all greatly inform our ministry, lead to personal transformation, and increase mission effectiveness.

Much like the two disciples on the road to Emmaus (see Luke 24:13-35), the significance of what has been seen and heard cannot always be discovered without the assistance of another (in this case, a mentor).

To a great extent, you will set the agenda for each mentoring session. Start by telling a story of particular interest to you. This can be a valuable starting point for further formation, both for you and your mentor. After all, you already have a share in the Vincentian charism. In other words, the mentor should not presume that he or she is the sole possessor of the charism, and is dispensing it to you. Unlike traditional teaching, this is not meant to be a “top down” approach.

Tips on making the experience a success…

  • Communicate clearly with your mentor.
  • Let them know what help and support you are looking for. Try to be as specific as you can.
