vocational research AND POSSIBLE RELIGIOUS experiences IN OUR COMMUNITY...
(STATUTES Cap. 2 - Journey toward Consecration)
2,9 At the beginning, a series of encounters will permit an initial knowledge of the candidates, to understand whether they are well-balanced and truly seeking God’s will. Following this, one may have an experience of at least six months in a determined house (cf. Chap. 6:4-5) for an initial vocational discernment.
2,10 One then proceeds with a year of test, denominated the pre-novitiate, during which one goes deeper into discernment and focuses better on the aspect of evangelical praxis, as well as on basic human and religious formation and psychological/affective maturity.
2,11 With this period finished, if suitable - according to the discernment of the major superiors - (cf. CIC 641), there follows the novitiate of two years, which prepares those closer to consecration for the temporary assumption of the evangelical counsels (cf. CIC 648).
2,12 At the end of the novitiate, one assumes the evangelical counsels, officially making the temporary profession (cf. Ch. 2,18; CIC 653 §2), which lasts 1 year at a time for 3 years (cf. Ch. 2,18; CIC 655). After this, one has access to the perpetual vows.
2,13 After the conclusion of the temporary vows, the members recognized as suitable make their perpetual profession; otherwise, they leave our community, except in the case of an extension of the temporary profession according to the norms of canon 657 §2 of the CIC.
