Campos do Jordão (Brazil)
[May 2024]

Monastic Formation Course in Rome

Brazil - Monastery of Campos do Jordão, osb

Project 3574 - Monastic Formation Course for two Sisters

Founded in 1964 by the Abbey of Uberaba, the monastery has been established as an abbey since 1981 and is part of the Brazilian Congregation.

The community is made up of around twenty sisters.

The sisters make jam, biscuits and cakes. They have a hostelry; they do catechesis for children and adults. They help the local population as much as they can by distributing food, clothing and medicine.


Two sisters are continuing their training at the Monastic Formation Course (CFM) of the Cistercian Order, which will take place from August 26 to September 21, 2024 in Rome (second year).

The Monastic Formation Course is under the patronage of the Pontifical Academy of Saint Anselm (Rome). The CFM will last three periods of five weeks in three consecutive years, from the end of August to the end of September. The CFM is devoted to the study of monastic sources and tradition, patristic and liturgical knowledge, knowledge of spirituality specific to the monastic ideal and cultural heritage, contact with the human sciences, and above all a solid knowledge of Sacred Scripture and monastic theology. A number of cultural and spiritual visits enrich intellectual training.

Financial assistance would be necessary for registration and travel costs.

Financial support requested: 5,000 euros.
