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 course will begin in September 2020 and conclude in June 2021. It will consist of two weeks of onsite classes in Rome from September 21 – October 2, 2020 and from February 1 – February 12, 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.
