The Jesuit Institute has recognised the need for spiritual accompaniment training specifically for those in religious congregations who are already doing the work of accompaniment in their communities.
We have created a new one-year programme entitled Spiritual Accompaniment for Catholic Religious which we believe would be an effective way of helping you to immediately learn how to accompany others.
This course will begin in April 2021 and end in April 2022.
It will be offered over 10 Saturdays online and have an in-person component where you will meet for 3-days in person in April 2021. The exact date and place will be confirmed when we know how many people would like to do this course.
Online spiritual direction and support-supervision will also be part of the programme.
The cost of the training will be R 10,500. Note that this cost does NOT include the cost of transport and accommodation for the in-person three days. This will be additional. A deposit of R2500 via EFT secures your place and needs to be paid by 21st March 2021.
The course co-ordinator will be Ms Puleng Matsaneng, who has over 20 years of experience in accompanying religious in spiritual direction. There will be a variety of guest presenters bringing their expertise and experience in spiritual accompaniment and formation.
Applications close 5pm 28 February 2021.
