Many Parts Ministries equips the Body of Christ by helping people learn about and discern their charisms (spiritual gifts) so they can see how they are being invited by the Holy Spirit to help grow the Church. No one is without a role.

you are needed just as you are.

We are activated by the urgency and the tragedy of Churches across the world being filled on Sunday mornings with people who think they have little, if anything to offer the Body of Christ, when that couldn’t be further from the truth. You already have the gifts you need.

“I have just returned to the Catholic faith about eight months ago…so blessedly and happily…and I have so much to learn.  I am thankful to be “home” again and enjoying this journey.  I heard about your ministry from the Abiding Together podcast. Continued prayers and blessing for the ministry. The $9 was well worth the personalized information of the assessment.”

About Our Resources

Welcome to our Many Parts Ministries, where we explore the rich tapestry of charisms, discernment, and spiritual growth in the modern world. As believers in the Catholic faith, we understand the importance of delving into the depths of our spirituality and discerning God’s will in our lives. Our resources, like our PDF guide to charisms, our charism assessment (spiritual gifts test for Catholics), and podcast serve as a beacon of light and guidance, offering insights, reflections, and conversations on these vital aspects of our faith journey.

Join us as we journey into the realm of charisms – the special gifts bestowed upon us by the Holy Spirit. From wisdom and prophecy to healing and administration, charisms come in various forms, each uniquely suited to our individual vocations and missions within the Church. Through engaging discussions and personal testimonies, we explore how these spiritual gifts empower us to build up the Body of Christ and serve others with love and humility.

Charisms are not mere talents or skills; they are manifestations of the Holy Spirit’s presence and activity in our lives. Rooted in Scripture and tradition, charisms are meant to be exercised in harmony with the teachings of the Church, fostering unity and cooperation among believers as we work together to advance God’s kingdom on earth.

There are 24 in all and you can learn more about them in our free PDF guide to charisms.

Charisms shape our lives by empowering us to serve others, build community, and fulfill our God-given purpose. They enrich our relationships, deepen our spirituality, and contribute to the flourishing of the Church.

In the hustle and bustle of everyday life, discernment serves as our compass, guiding us along the path of God’s will. Through our charism assessment (spiritual gifts test for Catholics), prayerful reflection and attentive listening, and gathering feedback, we discern the promptings of the Holy Spirit and discern how best to employ our charisms for the greater glory of God. Our podcast, Charisms for Catholics,  offers practical insights and guidance for navigating the discernment process, equipping you with the tools you need to discern God’s call in your life.

Discernment is a journey – a process of seeking God’s will amidst the complexities of our lives. It requires patience, humility, and an openness to the movements of the Holy Spirit. As we discern God’s call, we learn to trust in His providence and surrender our desires to His divine plan, knowing that He works all things for the good of those who love Him.

Discerning your charisms involves prayerful reflection, openness to the Holy Spirit, and seeking guidance from trusted spiritual mentors. Reflect on your passions, experiences, and areas of strength, noting where you feel most alive in serving others. Pay attention to feedback and confirmation from the Christian community. Experiment with different ministries and activities to see where your gifts bear fruit. Ultimately, trust in God’s guidance and timing as you discern your unique charisms.

In the digital age, Catholic podcasts have emerged as vibrant platforms for spiritual exploration and growth. Our podcast, Charisms for Catholics,  stands at the forefront of this movement, offering a treasure trove of resources and insights for Catholics seeking to deepen their faith and engage in meaningful dialogue about spirituality and discipleship.
