SFC Pastoral Formation Track
February 2007

Goals of Pastoral Formation:

HOLY – Spiritual Well-being

HAPPY – Emotional Well-being

HEALTHY – Physical/Material Well-being


? As pastoral heads, we must constantly discern what our members need, where the Lord is leading them and how best to achieve the above goals.

SFC Vatican II Realizations:

The need to have separate tracks for SFC Members and Leaders

Existing sequence of Singles Weekend Retreats (SWR1-3) may be improved.

The need to formalize a Chapter Monthly Cycle of Activities.
