“As more and more religiously sponsored ministries rely upon lay leaders in their schools and programs, expanding the charism formation in the history and mission of the religious congregation becomes increasingly vital.” says Jonathan Lewis, Vice President of CFT. “We are privileged to partner with forward-thinking organizations like the Dominican Charism Initiative to provide the technology platform and support they need to elevate and scale their community formation for leaders, both religious and lay.” The Dominican charism has been a driving force in Christianity for over 800 years and through this award-winning series, learners will deepen their understanding of the Dominican charism and expand global consciousness of Dominican life and mission.

About The Dominican Charism Initiative

The courses offer the opportunity for all members of the Dominican family and lay partners to learn the foundational elements of Dominican life and mission.
