Congregation is fortunate in having young people who wish to share in our mission. Their request to enter the congregation
implies their readiness to prepare for this by following an appropriate formation programme and to renew themselves continually
throughout their lives. The world in which we live is changing ever more rapidly and so is calling us to new types of mission
and witness (Maynooth 2)."
“An ethos of freedom with responsibility is
fundamental to all areas of [Spiritan] formation”(Torre d’Aguilha 6.2).
Here is our program for formation: from aspirancy
to theology and beyond.
Aspirancy - 1 year
Postulancy - 1 year, but the length may depend on the requirements
regarding prior philosophical studies of the institute of theological studies.
Novitiate - 1 year
OTP or 'Stage' - 1 year, to be done after two years of theology.
Theology - 4 years
