Before a decision is taken to admit an inquirer for postulancy, we require:
- a brief autobiography
- certificates of baptism and confirmation
- letters of recommendation
- a physical exam
- psychological screening
- an interview with a minister of the Church
Generally, we do not accept candidates over the age of 45.
Candidates must have minimally a high school education and work experience. We also ask that candidates be free from obligations such as debts and dependents. All candidates must be unmarried and free to enter a religious community.
