Stages of Formation

shrine-of-the-most-blessed-sacrament-in-hancevilleAspirancy: Up to 6 months

Outward sign: dark pants with white shirt

During this time young men are introduced to the Eucharistic-Marian-Papal-Franciscan spirituality of the Knights of the Holy Eucharist by visiting the community for work and prayer as well as for participating in the community schedule. During this time there is no commitment and the aspirant is free to leave at any time.

Candidate: Up to 6 months

Outward sign: dark pants with white shirt

During this time the young man continues to participate in the community. Feeling called to further commit his life to the Knights, he can make a short term promise for the remaining time up to Holy Thursday.

Postulancy: 1-2 years

Outward sign: dark pants, and white shirt with Eucharistic insignia

The Postulancy has the following objectives: to allow a judgment on the aptitude and vocation of the candidate; to verify the level of instruction of the candidate to continue with the necessary measures; to help in the transition from secular life to the novitiate; to initiate the formation in the spirit of the Association; and to help the postulant make a mature choice in life.

Novitiate: 2-years

Outward sign: tunic and new religious name is chosen

The novitiate is the principal phase of formation as he enters more fully into the community as a “brother”. Its objective is that the novice, under the care and guidance of Brother Guardian, should learn the responsibilities of community life; should practice the evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty, and obedience so he may acquire perfection in charity within community life; and may know better his divine vocation and his vocation as a Knight of the Holy Eucharist.

Temporary Profession: 5  years

Outward sign: tunic with hood and Scapular is given

The Juniorate is a basic period of formation that lasts all the time of private vows. During this time, the knight should affirm his voluntary commitment made to God. He should prepare in a most complete and progressive form, especially in the human, spiritual, religious, and apostolic aspects so that he may better serve the Church through the Association. At the same time he should strive to reach the personal growth and maturity to make his final commitment.

Final Commitment: After completion of 8 years

Outward sign: a crucifix is given

When the private vows have been completed, the Knight of the Holy Eucharist must be wholly dedicated to his mission and face the realities of his committed life. Conscious of his commitment, he should intensify his daily effort in studies and in human, spiritual, religious and practical formation.
