The 5 month course started on July 1 and will end on november 30, 2008 with the ‘Sending Mission Cerimony’. This year the partecipants are 22, coming from different parts of Asia.

The main topics this year are centered on renewal of: “Mission, Formation & Spirituality“.   Renewal is a gift waiting to be made our own, to be incarnated in the life of the world, in the life of men and women of Asia, in the life of the Church. The Church is always in need of an intense renewal of her life and mission.
