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
