God, in His providence, continues to call workers to serve the Family of God on earth by making the vision of Saint Gaetano Errico their own.
Those expressing interest in pursuing a religious vocation with our congregation have a personal devotion to the Sacred Hearts, are seeking a smaller community, and are drawn to share a fraternal life of sharing and commitment.
All postulants must have a high school diploma. The maximum age for entrance is 35, though older candidates may be considered depending on circumstances.
Our House of Studies is located in Fairfield, Pennsylvania, and our seminarians currently study at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary in Emmitsburg, Maryland. An education program for brotherhood and priesthood candidates will be tailored to individual needs.
Inquiries are made through the vocation director, who will contact you and assist in the discernment process.
Visits with the community are encouraged. After several visits, application may be made. Upon acceptance a candidate enters our postulancy program, which can last from six months to one year. Novitiate follows for a period of one year.
After the novitiate, the religious habit is received and temporary profession of vows is made. These are renewed annually for up to three years. Perpetual vows can then be taken.
Missionaries may use their gifts and talents in established apostolates or, after discernment by the whole community, they may venture into new ministries to serve the Kingdom as the Spirit leads them.
