Mercy Partners Formation aims to form leaders who understand their responsibilities as part of God's mission.

Formation seeks to develop in us sensitivity to where God is leading our lives and our mission.

Formation Programs

The Mercy Partners Formation Directorate offers a range of programs, events, resources and support for leaders in Mercy Partners ministries to foster and incorporate the founding congregations culture, values, charism and Catholic identity.

It is part of the responsibility of all PJPs to provide formation opportunities for the leaders of the ministries that they sponsor so that aspects of mission and charism will develop in response to future realities (Wright 2015).
