|2011 Formation Class|
The Formation program for Maryknoll priest and brother candidates includes academic requirements but also skills for pastoral ministry and maturing in one’s personal desire to reach out to others in cross-cultural mission apostolates. Undergraduate and graduate academic work is measured by required credits – for priesthood candidates to earn a Masters in Divinity at Catholic Theological Union (CTU); for brotherhood candidates to earn 24 credits in theology and to develop individual aptitudes for contributing to mission work.
Graduate students study at Catholic Theological Union. Undergraduate students study at St. Joseph Seminary, Loyola, St. Xavier, and Harold Washington . All students live at the Formation house on Hide Park Boulevard in Chicago. They are assisted in their continued discernment process by two veteran missionaries: Fr. John Eybel, MM and Brother Joe Bruener, MM.
