The formation capacities reflect core characteristics at the heart of the earliest Christian communities. BCE schools seek to reimagine these capacities in their contemporary contexts. The capacities:
are grounded in the scriptures and the story memories of the early Christian communities found in Acts;
give expression to the Jesus Communion Mission theological dimensions of the BCE Spiritual Formation Framework;
animate the BCE Vision ‘to teach, challenge and transform’ in everyday ways;
provide points of integration across the spectrum of Religious Institute charisms;
provide a lens for school communities to review the expression of their Catholic identity.
chart a pathway to nurture personal and communal spiritual life.
The whole group of believers was united heart and soul… (Acts 4: 32)
