Petawa promotes the belief that personal development and self-fulfillment can only find true expression in the context of service to others. Its programs and activities aim to challenge women, whether married or single, students or professionals, to accept their responsibility for the moral fiber of society and to work to help change the world by struggling for personal holiness.
Petawa offers women of all ages a complete plan of integrated formation, to improve their intellectual, moral, spiritual, cultural and professional formation. This formation is offered through leadership programs, Roman Catholic spiritual retreats, seminars on family life and marriage, Catholic theology classes and other religious & professional activities.
