Formation is something we do to enhance our capacity for involvement in mission and ministry in the Institute of Sisters of Mercy of Australia and Papua New Guinea (ISMAPNG). It is much more than training and education because it is about the internalisation of values, attitudes and ways of seeing. (Faith, Life and Ministry Education Framework)

Faith, Life and Ministry Education (FLAME), as part of the Mission Integration team, is responsible for the education and formation needs of staff within ISMAPNG. It also supports those responsible for the formation of staff within ISMAPNG’s ministries through consultation, provision of programmes, resources and networking opportunities.
