Letters of Reference

The Renovaré Institute requires that we receive two letters of reference and recommendation on your behalf. The first should be filled out by your Pastor/Spiritual Director/Religious Supervisor (Pastoral Referene) and the other one by someone who knows you on a personal level who is not a family member (Character Reference). 

We will offer you two options for requesting these letters, if you have not done so already, after you have submitted your application.
