God’s Embrace attempts to make the call to holiness an attractive and appealing invitation from God to us in our burdened and confused lives. As a school of formation, God’s Embrace embodies the spiritual disciplines and wisdom of our Catholic saints, mystics, and theologians, thus striving to offer the best in our Catholic heritage. The three-year formation program is geared to facilitate the creation of ardent disciples who would glorify God through the witness of their lives and service of the Church. The formation program relies on a threefold source:

  • Familiarity with the Bible so that our spiritual formation is steeped in God’s revelation of Himself through Jesus Christ, and the Trinity’s glorious plan of salvation for us
  • The rich heritage of Catholic Spirituality offered to us through the Desert Fathers and Mothers, the mystical writings of the Church Fathers on the Trinity and the Church, the contemplative traditions of the great monastic orders, and the ineffable teachings of the likes of Saints Francis of Assisi, Ignatius of Loyola, Teresa of Avila, and John of the Cross
  • The Catechism of the Catholic Church

The desired outcome is the living of our lives within the Trinitarian embrace, inextricably linked to the divine life of the Trinity and to one another in Christ.
