The Union Friends of Nano/Associate 2019-2020 formation program in Fargo is making history this year. We have six candidates participating in the nine-month process and the majority of them are men. Formation is the heart of our process and includes sessions on Nano, the icon, ministry, mission, Presentation spirituality, discernment, the IPA/Conference and Union, and many other topics. Each candidate has a companion to journey with them in the process. Sessions are taught primarily by associates with the assistance of our link sister, Sister Lorraine Schmaltz.
