Aspirancy

"I’d like to experience more about the Brothers’ way of life."

Aspirancy is a six-month to two year experience but may vary according to individual circumstances. This initial step takes place in response to a request by an individual who has already been in contact with a member of the Marist Vocations Team and “aspires” to explore seriously the question of becoming a Marist Brother. This request is processed through the Director of Vocations. A formal interview is arranged to ascertain the suitability and readiness of the person for the Aspirancy stage.

An Aspirant participate in a program including:

  • regular accompaniment with a Brother
  • development and integration of personal and faith life
  • involvement in service experiences
  • assessment of readiness for Postulancy
