GalileeU Tracks.

GalileeU sessions are offered through three main "tracks" of deeper formation: Living our Faith, Knowing our Faith, and Sharing our Faith. While we hope participants will join us for each track and for the whole track, you are welcome to join us as you are able. GalileeU sessions are offered in-person or virtually via zoom. Whether you are in-person or attending virtually, there will be great content and connection with others in every session.

We encourage you to join us in-person if possible, for the most interactive experience of community, content, and prayer. To provide the best experience possible for participants, all sessions are either totally in-person or totally online, and are offered on different dates. Due to the experiential learning nature of our sessions, we are unable to live-stream in-person sessions or offer recordings of online sessions. In other words, plan to be with us live, or plan to join us the next time we offer the session. Learn more about the various sessions and retreat opportunities below, as well as our current schedule of offerings.

Session Descriptions

Open AllClose All
  Small Group Facilitation Training

Whether you are a new small group leader, a leader-in training, or a veteran leader wanting to brush up on skills and best practices, this session will help you to hone your facilitation skills, learn how to respond to challenging small group situations, and explore ways to build your small group into a community which helps people fall in love with Christ, follow as disciples, and help others do the same.

  School of Prayer: Discernment of Spirits

Discernment of Spirits is the prayerful practice of listening to our interior movements or the stirrings of our hearts to follow God’s will for our lives. This session will help participants listen for, discern, and respond to God’s promptings in their daily prayer.

  Evangelizing Apologetics – Speaking the Truth with Love

At some time, all of us are in a situation where someone speaks about the Catholic faith in a questioning, confused, or hostile way. This calls for apologetics which is simply the “defense of the faith.” This impact session will explore how to prepare for and practice evangelizing apologetics, with specific practice on what to say and how to say it when talking about some of today’s most disputed Church Teachings.

  The Mission of the Church: Mission Essentials

It's not so much that the Church has a mission, as that the mission has a Church. In this session, we explore the essentials of this mission, how to get or stay on mission, and tools/resources for the mission.

  School of Prayer: The Disposition of a Missionary Disciple

Prayer is at the heart of missionary discipleship. This impact session will aid you in learning how to pray in light of the tradition of the Church, explore the dispositions of a prayerful heart, and give you opportunities to encounter Christ through prayer in a powerful way.

  Explaining the Eucharist


  Accompanying Others in the Ways of Discipleship

Discipleship grows in relationship. Do you know how to meet people where they are and accompany them to the destination of a lived discipleship? This impact session is basic training for how to: person-to-person discipleship. 

  Finding God in the Daily Tasks


  How Can I Trust the Church?


  Evangelizing Family, Friends, and Co-workers


  Living Fruitful Catholic Discipleship

We often hear that we are all "called to be disciples" and "to make disciples", but what does this actually look like? This session introduces the Anatomy of a Catholic Disciple as a process to help you get to know Jesus better, follow him more closely as his disciple, and help others do the same.

  Answering Atheism: The Case for Belief in God


  Called & Gifted Workshop

In your Baptism and Confirmation you received gifts that our world needs. Do you know yours?

These gifts of the Holy Spirit, called charisms, are important clues to the particular mission God has for you. There is no greater joy than living by His grace in the blessed intersection of your gifts and the world's need! Join over 100,000 Catholics around the world who have begun to discern their charisms through the Catherine of Sienna Institute's Called & Gifted workshop

  Be Devoted Marriage Retreat

Every Catholic Marriage needs moments of enrichment, renewal, and a deeper understanding having Christ at the center of your marriage. This "mini-retreat" is designed to help married couples encounter Christ in a deeper way through the great gift of their sacramental marriage. 

  Conversion Conversations: Walking with Others

The missionary disciple recognizes where people are on their journey of faith and lovingly invites them closer to Christ. This session will give you practical tools for both listening to understand where someone is in their journey and inviting that person to take the next step closer to Christ and his Church. Author Sherry Weddell calls this form of listening evangelism “the most fun you can have legally.”

  Sharing the Great Story: Practical Ways to Tell the Good News

The great story of God’s plan for His people has been told through the centuries and we, as missionary disciples, need to be able to tell it to others in a simple and genuine way. This session will equip you for sharing the Kerygma (the great story of Christ), and help you tell how the great story of Christ’s love has come alive in your life.

  Living Catholic Social Responsibility

Explore how to engage in the social issues of our day through the wisdom and practice of Catholic Social Teaching. 

  Salvation History in Scripture


  Cultivating a Heart for the Lost, Least, Last, and Lonely

Jesus went to those on the margins and loved them as they had never experienced before. A missionary disciple following in the steps of the Master, seeks to grow in that love for and truly see those on the margins of our own neighborhoods, workplaces, and community. Participants in this session will seek God's grace to stretch our hearts to love the lost, the least, the last, and the lonely.
