THE APPLICATION PROCESS
Step 4 is the first formal step in the application process. After completing it, if the Vocations Director and the candidate are in agreement, the candidate will receive the Application Packet and will be asked to fill out various papers, collect letters of recommendation, and undergo psychological testing.
The candidate will then attend an admissions board meeting during which the candidate will be interviewed by members of the province. The admissions board makes a recommendation to the Provincial who then makes an acceptance decision. If accepted, you become an admitted candidate for the novitiate!
Reflect on if the call seems authentic to you. Ask your spiritual director to do the same.
