Prayer and Spiritual Direction

Prayer is at the heart of the Launch Out Formation Programme.  It is what holds the formation process together and is key to the integration of learning, both academic study and pastoral experience projects.

All candidates have a Spiritual Director whom they meet with once per month.  There are three prayer days held throughout the year.  There is an annual weekend retreat, usually in June.  Candidates are encouraged to use a            theological process with the pastoral experience project mentor and candidates are encouraged to practice the same theological reflection in their daily lives.
