Formation Program
/ Learn / Formation Program

The Monastery will have a formation program aimed at young single men, between the ages of 18-25 year old, before or after college, who want to serve the Church in some capacity, but not be ready to commit to a particular path. 

This program will give them the opportunity to live as monastic novices, be immersed in the Scriptures and the services of the Church, the daily readings from the Fathers, and the life of the community, frequent confession and communion, and some good manual labor.

The program will contribute to raising the spiritual and educational level of the members of the Church, and equip men to become missionaries, go to seminary, become monks or clergy, and begin as a “summer novice” program, and be developed as possible.
