Formation House

We have a women’s formation house for young adults seeking personal growth and formation in the context of community. Desires and reasons for entering vary, but the hope is formation and growth of all members.

Our Formation Houses

We have a unique opportunity for young adult women to live in intentional formation houses with their peers. House members participate in a weekly community night of fellowship and prayer and are a presence in the IndyCatholic community. Hear from former community members below about their experiences:

 

"Community living helped me to strive for more in my faith journey. It is almost inevitable being surrounded by four other strong Catholic women leading by example, that I would be challenged and learning something new daily."

—Susan, former community house member

 

"Women should consider living in community if they want to learn concretely how to give of themselves in a way that is sometimes uncomfortable, but when lived, who you were designed to be."

—Erica, former community house member

 

Our Formation Houses aren't simply a collection of Catholic people living together; our houses seek to be intentional living communities with a unique vision and mission that drives everything!

 

Some common threads of communal living are:

  • Weekly community nights
  • Daily communal prayer
  • Annual retreat
  • Involvement and presence in IndyCatholic community
