Ongoing Formation MSC Indonesia

If we understand Spirituality of the Heart as the underpinning structure of our lives, we see that it shapes and colours our perceptions and actions. While at the centre of our life and prayer our spirituality is more than a devotion, more than a theology; its movements are part of the human experience and give us a way of seeing ourselves and our mission in relation to God. In July 2022 the MSC Indonesian Province brought its younger men together in Bali for two weeks of Ongoing Formation [OGF]. Here there are three video presentations, produced by the wonderful media office of the province, on the content of that OGF.
