Religious Formation is the process of becoming more and more a disciple of Jesus Christ. It is that process that brings about a transformation which affects one’s entire being towards the life of Evangelical Counsels. It is equally a period of mutual discernment.
It divided into two major parts: Initial and On-going Formation.
The Initial Formation is made up three stages: Aspirancy, Postulancy and Novitiate
Aspirancy – This program is designed for young women who seek admission into the Religious Life but have not yet all the required material. Programs like Re-union and Live-in experience are means of instruction and reaching out.
Postulancy – A two and half-year period during which the candidates learn to live the common and spiritual life of the community. At this period also the genuineness of the vocation is mutually discerned.
Novitate – A two-year program of seclusion, which offers the candidate the opportunity to grow towards an ever-deepening holistic maturity. This period culminates in the public pronouncement of the vows of Chastity, Poverty and obedience.
On-going Formation- Formation is a life-long process. Hence this stage offers continuous programs to help the religious remain in constant union with God amidst the challenging busy apostolic life.
