First Phase: Inquiry
Over a period of about five months, the Inquirer will attend monthly meetings with a sponsor in order to discern whether she/he is being called by God to be an Associate of the Sisters of St. Joseph.
Second Phase: Candidacy
The Inquirer becomes a Candidate for association at a Welcoming Rite, and receives the Maxims of the Little Institute. Over the next year or so the Candidate continues monthly meetings, at which she/he studies the charism, spirituality, history and mission of the Congregation, prays with the Associate community and discerns readiness for making a commitment to living the mission as a CSJ Associate.
Third Phase: Association
The Associate continues to attend monthly meetings, strive to deepen in the spiritual life, and live the mission. The commitment may be renewed yearly.
