After the stage of â€œCome and Seeâ€ and being candidate you enter the stage of Pre-Novitiate. In Gen 12, 1 and 4 we hear Godâ€™s mission for Abram:
â€œGo from your country and your kindred and your fatherâ€™s house to the land that I will show you. â€¦ So Abram went, as the Lord had told himâ€¦.â€
Like Abraham followed Godâ€™s call you will live with a specific orientation.
- How about my possibility to live with Godâ€™s call?
- Do I need some avocation every moment, or can I live in his presence?
During this stage you learn a second language e.g. English. You also start learning about the history and charism of our congregation and our founders, and you begin organized studies in Bible, Theology and Catechism. Also some general human formation is important in this period to help understand and clarify your vocation.
