This course offers an updating for those who are dedicated to the formation of future priests.

It is primarily organised as an opportunity to study, analyse and share experiences between those formators who have the responsibility to accompany seminarians in their discernment, growing and maturity.

The programme is mainly based on the principles of the new Ratio Fundamentalis Institutionis Sacerdotalis, Pastores dabo vobis, and on the guidelines of the new Directory for the Ministry and the Life of Priests and of the Apostolic Exhortation Evangelii Gaudium.

Target group

Rectors, vice-rectors, spiritual directors and other seminary formators.
