Yet again, our nation grieves.
Yet again, the life of a child
has been cut dreadfully short.

Ash Wednesday

May we enter into this Lenten season whole-heartedly, being a reconciling presence to one another and in our world, and attentive to hidden acts as we pray, fast and give alms.

Steve Bevans, SVD

Teresa Maya, CCVI

Why the urgency to re-imagine formation around the call to encuentro? Why would encuentro, and I am using the Spanish intentionally, be so critical to our life as religious and to our initial and ongoing formation? We must begin with this question as we gather from across the country, and even from different parts of the globe, with the single purpose of having a conversation about formation in religious life that will help us recognize Grace in the Now: The Gospel of Encounter.

InFormation Special Edition

The Religious Formation Conference is delighted to share with you a special edition of InFormation. Many of you requested manuscripts of the keynote presentations from November's Congress. We are pleased to provide that with this issue.
