The goal that unifies the diverse stages and experiences of the priesthood formation is to form men capable of offering their entire lives to God within our apostolic society.
The goal of Probation is to experience first-hand our style of evangelization, the way we live out the evangelical counsels, our spirituality, and our way of life.
The challenge of the New Evangelization calls for an excellent level of intellectual formation, so that those in formation are capable of offering the “reason for the hope which is in them” (1 Pe 3:15).
Our specific mission requires us to be well-formed and capable of forming others. We must be able to comprehend the circumstances of people around us, and to present the message of Christ in a relevant way.
