The aspirant lives in the monastery and is introduced to the Passionist life, sharing our daily prayer, work, and life.
The postulant prepares the candidate for entry into the novitiate, helping them to acquire gradually the spiritual and psychological dispositions, as also the human and affective maturity necessary for contemplative life. It further provides them with the possibility to discern more clearly their own vocation through the immediate experience of Passionist life.
The novice goes deeper into the study of the vows. This time also helps them to discern more fully if this is indeed their vocation.
The religious makes her profession of vows for one year periods for six years. During this period, the formation and integration of the young professed religious into community living continues, while they are being appropriately prepared for the perpetual profession.
Perpetual Profession is the outstanding expression of religious consecration to the service of God and the Church.
Formation should be lifelong. The On-going formation enables them to penetrate ever more profoundly the meaning of their own vocation, as well as to know the life of the Church and of the society in which they should be spiritually present.
