2020 Life Commitment Program to be Offered Virtually July 6-11

Join us online for this year's Life Commitment Program
In extraordinary times, we are called to respond in extraordinary ways.
The Conference originally planned, as we have for the past 30 years, to gather women and men discerning/anticipating profession of final vows for an 8-day immersion with experienced wisdom guides listening and dialoging on topics at the core of vowed religious life in the 21st century. Circumstances beyond our control, however, necessitate an alternative plan for this year's program.
While Zoom cannot replace the gifts of being together in person, it does offer us opportunities to gather virtually, pray together, share learning and insights, and experience community in a new way.
This year's Life Commitment Program has been reconfigured as a virtual experience of connection and community, faith and prayer, learning and dialogue. The same components that have made the program so good all these years will be integrated into the online format.

Today's extraordinary circumstances are not our choosing. Guided by the Spirit and with faith in one another, we'll do extraordinary things in extraordinary ways!
