On the request of Fr. Anthony Pillai, Province Coordinator for Formation of Ordained Scholastics (PCF-OS) – after Ordination until Final vows -, I convoked a meeting of all those fall under the above category. The meeting was held at the Provincialate in Negombo on 27th of July, 2018.
I took this step since many provinces in the Society had frequently expressed a deep concern regarding the absence of guidance for scholastics between the period of their ordination and final vows. This is a period in Jesuit Formation that many do not get the opportunity as in a formation house of coming together to share their common interests, ideas and expectations and guided spiritually and intellectually by competent Jesuits. The Society expects from those responsible for guidance of the ordained scholastics to create opportunities to grow in appreciation of their vowed life now crowned with priestly ordination.
