SCTJM- Academic Formation Fund
Academic Formation of Our Sisters
"The formation of consecrated women...should
be adapted to modern needs and should provide
sufficient time and
suitable institutional opportunities
for a systematic education,
extending to all areas, from the theological-pastoral to the
Pastoral and catechetical formation,
is particularly relevant in view of the new evangelization, which
calls for new forms of participation
also on the part of women.
Clearly, a more solid formation, while helping consecrated
women to understand better their own gifts, cannot but encourage
Church the reciprocity which is needed.
In the field of
theological, cultural and spiritual studies, much can be expected
from the genius of women, not only in relation
to specific aspects
of feminine consecrated life,
but also in understanding the faith in all its expressions".

be ardent witnesses to the power of love and the splendor of the

love and life.

"into the deep," bringing forth the reign of love of the Two
Hearts in all sectors of society and with its influx transforming
them from within. Yes, the love of Christ urges us to go out “into the deep”
and to be joyful and faithful witnesses to love, to the splendor
of truth, and the Splendor of the Church.
In order to do this lovingly, effectively and in full communion with
the Heart of the Church, good academic formation is essential. Each
of our sisters is in constant formation, further deepening her
knowledge of the teachings and treasures of the Church. We desire to
have sisters formed in the different academic fields in institutions
of Catholic Higher Education, to be readily available to serve Our
Mother the Church, by placing our charism at her service. The Marian principle serving the Petrine principle. As the community
continues to grow, the capacity to financially provide for this type
of formation has become beyond our possibilities. That is why
