Training and Formation:
After an interview (normally in the month of August) a candidate is admitted to the formation programme which lasts for a whole year (every Saturday). He/she should have completed his/her Form IV education and be a practicing Catholic (Letters of recommendation from the priests are necessary). After a year long formation, on Mission Sunday the person then commits as a philothea lay missionary to work in a specific area of ministry (ministerial mission to the Family, Youth, Professionals, catechetical formation, pastoral care to the sick, liturgical formation).
The Lay Missionaries are required to keep up their on-going formation through the monthly conference, recollection and annual retreat.
They are to follow their specific Regulations.
