THE APPLICATION PROCESS
Once a man has attended at least one Come and See as well as visited at least one other house within the Order, and if the call seems authentic to the candidate, to his spiritual director, and to the Promoter of Vocations, the candidate will ask for the Interview for Application. The Vocation Director will then meet with the candidate and give him a formal interview.
This interview 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.
