|Discernment and Formation|
|Intimacy With Christ|
|A Typical Day at the Novitiate House|
After a time of novitiate and formation (seven years), during which they endeavor to enter fully into the spirit of the family of Saint John, the Brothers live in small communities: priories. The apostolic activity of these priories seeks to be the "irradiation" of the contemplative and religious life of the Brothers. Therefore, their first role is to be an "oasis" of spiritual hospitality and of search for and communication of the truth.
