Catholic Strengths Institute

"Strengthening the Catholic Community by Strengthening You!"

Welcome to the Catholic Strengths Institute.

The Catholic Strengths Institute was founded in 2016 as a way to provide a central gathering point for Catholic resources that help people explore and learn about their God-given talents and gifts. Working with our friends at Gallup, Inc. and other Catholic strengths leaders around North America, our goal is to help individuals understand themselves and others - in a variety of settings including work, school, family, marriage, and church. Discovering our talents helps us to see the grace of God in our lives, develop personally and as a community, and connect our faith with daily life.

We hope your journey into discovering the unique talents and gifts God has given you is rewarding and enlightening for you personally. We invite you to become familiar with the Catholic Strengths Institute website. We think you will appreciate a basic understanding of the overall process and its many applications within your everyday life. 


We welcome your comments and testimonials on how these ‘talent themes’ have clarified - and verified - what you have always believed about yourself. God bless you in your journey as you discover your talents and build your strengths.
