Novices Take Part in ICCN Orientation
Last week new members of the InterCongregational Collaborative Novitiate (ICCN) gathered for the first time with their at-home novice directors for orientation.
This year’s ICCN community comprises six women from six different congregations from six different countries.
The program facilitates ongoing discernment in a holistic and mentoring environment that fosters relational, spiritual, intellectual, and intercultural growth and development; nurtures individual charisms and the charism of religious life; and prepares novices to live vowed apostolic religious life.

What a blessing it will be for these women to pray, live and grow together in faith. Please join us here at the Conference in praying for this year’s novices and their journey this year.

Together Participants Prepare for Semester Ahead
This week, the Together community will meet for orientation and begin preparations for the semester ahead at Catholic Theological Union (CTU).
The Together community welcomes six women from six different congregations from three different countries.
Participants enroll in one of the graduate theology programs at CTU, share community, and participate in ongoing formation together as an intercultural, inter-congregational, and intergenerational cohort. Learn more about Together here:
We ask you to hold them in prayer, too, as they begin this year as a new living/learning community of faith.
