“The Juniorate is the period of six years starting from first profession. This stage where the young professed of temporary vows and of perpetual vows” begins a new phase in the formation which benefits from the dynamism and the stability born of profession.

It is about gathering the fruits of the preceding stages and to continue one’s own human and spiritual-charismatic growth through the animated practice of what has been promised.

This stage comprises: the intensive and extensive Juniorate, and the preparation for perpetual vows. (cfr. GPF 166)
