RFC Welcomes 12 to Inaugural Compromiso de Vida Program

The Conference is excited to welcome 12 women and men religious to the inaugural Compromiso de Vida program! 

Designed from a Hispanic cultural perspective and presented in Spanish, this program will allow those preparing for final vows to share the stories and the experiences that have led them to this moment of choice: discerning a lifelong commitment to vowed religious life. 

Beginning on Sunday, participants will gather as a community of faith committed to sharing their wisdom and learning from one another. Opportunities will be offered for input, small and large group interactions, prayer, laughter and building relationships.
