The decision to join the Basilian Fathers is simply a commitment to dedicate one’s life to the service of God and the people of God. It is a decision which cannot be taken lightly, but which can lead to a meaningful and fulfilling life and place in the community of God. Basilians are blessed with a formation process that can be tailored to meet individual needs while at the same time providing individuals with the common experiences shared by all Basilian priests. The formation process is challenging, but often joyful. Each Basilian shares a common path towards priestly service, but each walks that path uniquely so they can be healthy, balanced, holy priests.
