Developing a vocation to religious life takes time. It involves inquiry, exchanges, visits, discussions with members of the community and assessments regarding interest, commitment and the ministry of the congregation. 

There are periods of reflection, reading, prayer and spiritual direction.

Phases from the call to be a Servant of the Paraclete Priest or Religious Brother are Candidate, Associate, Novice, First Profession, Renewal and Final Profession of vows and finally ordination for those who choose that specificity.
