Celebrating Forty Years
The RFM Programme follows the September to June academic year and welcomes Sisters, Brothers and Priests from Congregations, Societies and Dioceses. Its aim is to provide a robust experience of human and spiritual development in the context of a Church and world which are experiencing major social and global changes.
Acknowledging the impact of these challenges and struggling to understand them while respecting the diversity of views, cultures and lived experiences in the group, enables participants to journey more effectively and confidently with others in their search for God in life and ministry today.
The RFM Programme incorporates the best available contemporary insights in spirituality, theology, cosmology, psychology, social justice and group dynamics to give participants a vision of formation and leadership which energises, renews and affirms them as they return to take up their roles at the end of the year.
In this context, participants are given space and time for reflection, study and worship in which they can appropriate and communicate the values of the Gospel. In doing this they experience the challenge of intercultural living and engage meaningfully with issues of race, diversity, gender, authority, ecology, and other global concerns related to ministry in Church and society. The process of personal integration is enhanced by:
