What is Formation ?  

The progressive transformation of the person in Christ – takes place under the action of the Holy Spirit and in collaboration with him. Through this process, we can discern God’s will and God’s invitation and deepen our love and faith. Each Sister, responding to her call, shares responsibility for her own formation for life and mission, in accordance with the spirit and purpose of the Congregation.
