A significant component of the RFC mission is to educate and strengthen formators in their ministry of formation.
In keeping with our long legacy of professional preparation of formation ministers, we're excited to welcome 15 new leaders to the ForMission class of 2025.
We look forward to traveling this journey with you, sisters and brothers!
They will join the 2024 ForMission class and team at the University of St. Mary of the Lake just north of Chicago on May 31st for the summer 2023 residential session focused on community living.
Please hold these groups in your prayers as they journey together in these transformative days of learning, reflecting, sharing and praying!
In addition to the ForMission team and participants, some phenomenal thought leaders will join us to help us explore community living from a variety of perspectives.
