The religious formation is the bringing to birth of a new personality which was conceived in Baptism and now shaped and fashioned to respond to the particular mode of Christian vocation. It is to assist the young religious to grow in a personal love for Christ and a deepening sense of Christian Community.Here they get a chance to continuously mould their personality to become good and devout religious, with strong faith and high dedication to the religious life.
The Formation Program of our Congregation consists of one to three years of aspirancy (completion of Plus 2) one year Pre-Novitiate, one year Canonical Novitiate, one year Regency (time for community experience) and five to six years of Temporary Vows.
