Lorren Harbin, csj

I am interested in the different perspectives of religious life and vows, formation in today's world and around the world, it would be good to interact with others. There is so much going on globally that bringing together formators to share and learn from each other would be enriching and enhance my communal efforts.

Due to so many challenges in life, and fuelled by the taboo in an African culture, these make it difficult to journey with individual and on the other hand, the individual potential candidate finds it difficult to let go and confine on the formator, then what is the best inclusive strategy to use in the process of journeying with formees which will initiate or trigger the importance of discerning the will of God and the genuine search in an individual. Coming together from diverse countries and diverse realities, we will be able to identify the real obstacle which makes us failures to journey with individuals in our time, through sharing.


Sr. Justina Obiefuna
