Phases  of Formation


The Novitiate Phase is a two-year period of intensive spiritual preparation for your total dedication to God through the religious profession.

You will be given time and space to:


  • Deepen your personal relationship with Christ

  • Experience alternate times of solitude and missionary service

  • Develop your relationship with God through study of scriptures, theology, and the spiritual life

  • Deepen your understanding and experience of poverty, celibacy, and obedience through intense prayerful reflection

  • Learn how we, as missionaries,
    live our dedication to Christ and His people
