Santa Croce Program

The Santa Croce Program is designed specifically for Formators and Superiors (or for potential future Formators or Superiors) from CMSWR communities. The dates for the course have been revised. The course will begin in February 2021 and conclude in December 2021. It will consist of two weeks of onsite classes in Rome from February 1 – 12, 2021 and from September 13 – 24, 2021.  Written exams will be taken from the United States in December of 2021. Classes in Rome will be taught by Santa Croce faculty in the mornings; afternoon will have opportunities for visiting sacred sites in Rome and environs. In the intervening months, the sister students will be assigned readings and papers under the supervision of the Santa Croce faculty. The sister students will earn European credits which are transferable to any European Pontifical University.

The cost for the program is $500 (travel not included).
