Intercultural Outreach

Esposas de Cristo, Hijas de la Iglesia

July 17 – 28, 2017
St. Aloysius Retreat Centers in Hopewell Junction, New York

“Religious should strive during the whole course of their lives to perfect the culture they have received in matters spiritual and in arts and sciences” (PC 18).

The summer course is one of the many events through which CMSWR seeks to enrich and nourish religious life in the United States. Women religious from different congregations will serve as instructors or the course, providing introductory talks and facilitating discussions. It is a communal experience of ongoing intellectual, theological, and spiritual formation, as promoted by Perfectae Caritatis, the Vatican II Decree on the Adaptation and Renewal of Religious Life: “Religious should strive during the whole course of their lives to perfect the culture they have received in matters spiritual and in arts and sciences” (18).

First held in 2015 as an initiative for the Year of Consecrated Life, the event provides a forum for ongoing intellectual formation, prayer, and community among Hispanic sisters from different congregations.

The Esposas de Cristo course provides a forum for ongoing intellectual formation, prayer, and community among Hispanic sisters from different congregations.
