Jesuit Training

Jesuit Formation is challenging and rewarding and is always undertaken with the idea of mission in mind. What we do in our formation helps us to be better able to help others. Jesuit Formation prepares men to become priests and brothers who are well educated, trained in the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, and skilled to minister in diverse and ever-changing environments. The training of a Jesuit takes place over a period of 10 to 15 years and encompasses the following dimensions: Intellectual Formation, Spiritual Formation, Apostolic Formation, Personal Growth Formation and Community Life (living in community with other Jesuits).
