Daily life

“The main goal is to lay solid foundations for the spiritual life and to foster personal growth through an understanding of the self. To reach spiritual maturity, students will have to enter the grace of prayer through sacramental life, the Liturgy of Hours, the familiarity with the Word of God, silence, vision and spiritual readings all are driving aspects for a steady progress.”
