Reignite the Fervor - 2019 Life Commitment Program

Br. Peter Lamick, CSV

Life Commitment Program: An Experience of a Lifetime

"I did not expect how spiritually enriching it was going to be. Spending time with my religious brothers and sisters from different congregations has really reignited that initial fervor within me and really my desire to leave everything behind and to follow Christ."

As Brother Peter attests (photo right), last year's Life Commitment Program was transformative! The participants even created a video of their experience to give you a sense of how important this time together was for them. Take a look!

The Life Commitment Program is an 8-day experience that provides an opportunity for Catholic religious women and men to contemplate and reflect on their call to embrace a life-time commitment to consecrated life. Those discerning or anticipating profession of final vows gather with their peers and presenters, seasoned in religious life and skilled in adult learning processes, to engage the compelling questions, experiences, and insights that speak to the reality of living vowed religious life in the 21st century. 

If you are discerning final vows, take the next step on your journey and apply to attend this year's gathering!
