We are now planning for MFP 2022, after having postponed the program from 2021. There are still enormous difficulties posed by covid, but we are determined to go ahead.
The planned dates are: Arrivals in Rome– Monday 14th March; Departures from Rome – Monday 6th June
We are making it a 12-week Program, 85 days including arrival and departure days. For those on a 90 day visa it will allow are few extra days should they need to do anything else, as is sometimes the case.
In Rome we will be based at Sant’ Anselmo for about seven weeks, and five weeks at the Oasi Sacro Cuore in Assisi. It is a lovely contrast – the rich history of the city, and the peace and tranquillity of the Umbrian countryside.
Application forms can be downloaded from this site or sent to you as an email attachment. Please contact Fr Brendan Thomas if you would like further information.
The closing date for applications will be September 30th 2022, and already a number of applications have been received. Later applications will be considered according to the availability of places.
The all-inclusive fee for the Program is expected to be €7,000 (Euros) which represents the actual cost of putting on the Program, per person. Thanks to generous of supporters of the Program a limited number of bursaries and scholarships will be available for those communities in need of assistance.
The next Monastic Formators' Program is planned for 2022
