Description

By Rachel Nyback, 2015. "Newly ordained priests are not given consistent support upon entering the ministry. As the practical, dynamic theology of the priesthood becomes more prevalent in western culture, newly ordained priests need help navigating their role and function post-ordination. Mentors have been shown to be an effective source of support for newly ordained priests. Training and continued support of the mentors is crucial in setting expectations for reflective practice and for attaining best practices in the mentor relationship. This thesis explores the training of mentors over a nine-month period and the benefits of reflective relationships with their assigned mentees. " -- Abstract
