INTEGRATION STEPS

STEP 1 :
THE APPLICATION

Before being welcomed into the Community, the person who asks himself the question of the call to the Beatitudes must regularly attend a house of the Community and meet one of its leaders. The head of the house can then decide to open an “application” file for this person and begin a first discernment with him.

STEP 2 :
COMMON TRAINING COURSE

At the end of the application, the person lives the stage of the internship. She is then welcomed into the Community for one year (duration adapted according to the situation of the person, in particular for couples). The internship is a time of maturation of desire, discernment and discovery of the charism proper to the Community. It is a real school of life.

STEP 3 :
POSTULATE/PROBATION IN A BRANCH

At this stage, the person orients himself towards a state of life within the Community in order to continue his journey and his discernment. She is thus welcomed in one of the two consecrated branches (postulancy) or in the lay branch (probation). The courses are different according to the branches. Upon entry into postulancy or probation, the person receives the community cross. This stage can last one to two years.

THE STAGES IN THE BRANCH OF THE BROTHERS

3- THE POSTULATE

The postulant deepens his call, continues the discernment of his state of life, and is accompanied in this perspective by the local leader of the brothers. He participates in the life of the branch of the brothers.

4- THE NOVITIATE

If the call to consecrated life in the Community is confirmed, the person will do a year of canonical novitiate in a House erected for this purpose. During the novitiate, the person receives formation in the consecrated life, in the meaning and practice of the evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty and obedience within the Community.

5- TEMPORARY VOWS

If the novitiate confirms his call, the novice makes his first vows. By profession of temporary vows, he is incorporated into the Community. This period lasts between four and six years.

To signify this, the brother receives the habit and the white scapular, as well as the community liturgical cape.

4- PERPETUAL VOWS

At the end of this time of temporary vows, the brother makes perpetual vows of chastity, poverty and obedience. He is thus definitively incorporated into the Community of the Beatitudes and he becomes forever, united to Christ, “the only treasure and his only hope” on earth.

To signify this, the brother receives the liturgical cowl, the brown scapular and the community cross carved with the paschal lamb.
