Feast of the Chair of Saint Peter (Feb. 22)
Description: Using scriptures from the Catholic liturgy of Febuary 22 (1 Peter 5:1-4, Psalm 23:1-6, and Matthew 16:13-19), this leaflet focuses on the quality of leadership called “shepherding.” All leaders — clergy and laity, religious and secular — are called to imitate Jesus’ style of shepherding. Parents are to do it as they shepherd their families. Teachers are to do it as they shepherd their classrooms. Employers are to do it as they shepherd those who work under them. Secretaries are to do it as they shepherd the people who come through their office.
Ideas for use: Use it as a bulletin insert for the Sunday before the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, or as a handout for a staff meeting, ministry leadership workshop, parenting seminar, businessmen’s luncheon, RCIA class, etc.
