As first year of our formation program, will take place in Mbaukwu in the Diocese of Awka. It is a time for both the community as well as for the candidate to get known each other. This is a time of introduction in the Pallottine way of living, of our spirituality and charism, without any legal engagement from both sides.
The candidates are living together with two priests as formators for nine months. They receive instruction in varies subject ( e.g. the catholic faith, liturgy. Human Development. Bible Prayer, Vincent Pallotti our finder, African culture, Life of Saints, English French…). Daily Holy Mass, Pallottine Prayers and Prayers of the church are part of our religious exercises; sport; music and manual work in house and farm are also important for the growth of each and everyone. There will be a break in june, when the candidates go home in their respective families. The program will finish at the end of October 2012. If the candidate is admitted he will then go for Noviciate and thereafter to Philosophy and Theology. Candidates for brotherhood are having their specific program to follow.
If during the year or at the end of the Postulancy the candidate will leave the experience on his own, or for one reason or the other is send home, the community has no obligation towards the candidate or his family.
