Fall 2019 InFormation


We are pleased to share with you the fall edition ofInFormation. The feature article by Program Director, Connie Schoen, OP, The Sacred Work of Gifting Forward, reflects on practices that help us become aware of the God who is always present with us. Her passionate essay is based on her experience directing programs at the RFC and illustrates the best religious life has to gift our church and world. 

Additionally, three others reflect on the theme of this year's Congress: Being Signs of Courageous Hope. A religious Brother, younger Sister, and a congregational Associate explore what it means to tend to the spaces where God's love is breaking through, co-creating communities of justice, love, and peace.
