THE SPIRITUAL PATH

The Spiritual Path, consisting of ten monthly group sessions, forms the basis of discernment for commitment as a Dehonian Associate. These interactive sessions on the charism of Fr. Dehon and the spirituality of the Priests of the Sacred Heart use an adult learning process that begins in experience. After a commitment, renewed yearly, Dehonian Associates continue to meet regularly for mutual support as they put the Dehonian charism into practice within the family, a profession, or other groups of Church and society.
