In response to the need for the training of sisters in formation ministry, expressed in the recent survey of congregational leaders, the International Union of Superiors General (UISG) is offering a programme in English to prepare sisters for the responsibility of accompanying those in initial formation to religious life, in the context of their religious congregations, the church and the world of the 21st century.
In an international and intercongregational setting, the participants will explore various dimensions of religious life with a focus on integrating these anew in their own lives and assisting their newer members to grow into and integrate these dimensions as they become members of their congregations.
The programme is designed by UISG who will coordinate it and oversee the integration processes. Part of the input will be offered by UISG presenters and part through courses taken for audit in the Course for Formators offered at the Angelicum (Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas).
The programme will offer various ways to help the participant integrate the content of the programme, including personal reflection, group work, spiritual accompaniment and a personally directed retreat. Each participant assumes the responsibility for her own human and spiritual growth and commits herself to active and engaged participation.
