From Divine Mercy Region’s Spiritual Assistant Program

Posted on Updated on

The Spiritual Assistant Training Program is begun for the new participants. We are pleased to announce that there are currently three trainees enrolled in our program . They are Kim Spaniola, OFS – Troubadours of St. Clare, Laura Sapien, OFS – St. Bonaventure, Detroit and Br. George Kooan, OFM Cap – St. Joseph Province.

In addition to our participants, the first orders has expressed an interest in our program. In the next three years we will have several Friars from different Provinces, that are bonded to Divine Mercy Region, joining us to help teach our weekends. This will also provide us the opportunity to learn more about their Order.

We still have several Fraternities that are without a Spiritual Assistant. However with your help we can fill those vacancies. If you are, or know someone that has been professed two years or more, and would be interested in becoming a Spiritual Assistant, the program is still taking applications until the end of June. To apply please contact Linda Solis, Administrator, Spiritual Assistant Training Program at lsolisofs@gmail.com

We ask that you keep our participants, our team and our program in your prayers as we journey together over the next three years.
