FOR THE GREATER GLORY OF GOD
VOCATION PRAYER FOR SEPTEMBER
O God you chose to manifest the blessed hope of your eternal Kingdom by the toil of Saint Peter Claver. His life continues to witness to the power of your grace, generation after generation. Through his intercession we ask you to bless the Society of Jesus with young men of faith and courage that we may continue to serve your people. Help us to become like Jesus who came to serve and not be served. Amen

Jesuit Candidacy Program
During this period of probation, the candidates have a chance to learn and know more about the Society of Jesus and religious vocation. The program helps candidates to discern their vocation as God continues to work in their daily life experiences and witnessing.
Jesuit Candidate Events
A regular series of "Come and See" Events are offered to Candidates, the purpose of which is to expose Candidates to different facets of Jesuit life and formation.
A life-long commitment
Candidates decide before they enter the novitiate that this is the life to which God is calling them and they want to embrace it for life. They spend two years learning more about Jesuit life and history. During these years, they confirm their decision to be Jesuits and at the end they pronounce their vows. The vows of poverty, chastity and obedience are a young man’s formal incorporation into the Society of Jesus and they are pronounced with great generosity.
