Admission into our Seminary and Society is now open to foreign aspirants with same or similar requirements (1a & 1b) above, who wish to join our congregation.
THE PROCESS: When a candidate is accepted, he goes for a two-year spiritual formation in our House of Formation in Iperu-Remo, Ogun State, Nigeria. At the end of that, successful candidates proceed to study philosophy for four years in our seminary in Gwagwalada-Abuja, Nigeria after which the candidate does a four year theological program. Note that the last year of philosophy is the first year of theology. Candidates make their first commitment at the beginning of the philosophy and the final commitment at the diaconate ordination. During the program, there are opportunities for practical experiences during the long vacations when students are attached to parishes.
