The candidates receive their Spiritual, Missionary or Pastoral, Intellectual, Human and Psycho-emotional, and Social and Community formation in this place by following the Order’s tripartite formation principle of bene orare (to pray well), bene vivere (to live well), and bene studere (to study well).
