The formation of Jesuits, whether of brothers or priests, prepares men to dialogue with the culture around them, finding Christ in that culture and helping others to do the same. Our aim is a strong integration of the spiritual with the human and a full development of the person based on the imitation of Christ.

Our formation involves deep academic preparation, so as to prepare us better to help others. The step of tertianship which concludes the formation of a Jesuit, is followed by last vows, signifying definitive incorporation into the body of the Society of Jesus. But, throughout his life, a Jesuit is called to engage in ongoing renewal, and different programmes are organised for his continuing formation, with a creative fidelity to the founding documents of the Society of Jesus.
