Ongoing Formation

Through ongoing formation, we provide opportunities for personal and spiritual growth and development, and for the renewal of energies of our Sisters. As a Community, we are committed to provide the climate for positive growth and balanced freedom which allows the Sisters to ever more fully embrace their commitment to live Gospel-centered lives.

Recognizing that each Sister is unique, we encourage her to assess and respond to her specific needs and to assume responsibility for her growth, development and ongoing formation. Ongoing formation resources are available for Sisters as posted in their section of the website.
