UNDERTAKING A FORMATION IN THE SPIRIT OF SJMV

One of the foremost priorities expressed by the founder was to establish a certain cohesion between the training for priesthood and the actual way to exercise the ministry. This is why the forming of seminarians always refers to the charisma of the SJMV. It is the way of acquiring a proper stimulation on the path of holiness and progress towards an authentic and charitable pastoral action. This includes a strong and structured spirituality as well as a sharp intellect focused on the revelation. It is further supported by a vibrant life in the community. This fosters a genuine missionary fervour.

Les prêtres de la SJMV en effet, en cohérence avec la formation qu’ils proposent, veulent s’engager ensemble, non seulement par des temps de partage fraternels, dans l’amitié, la réflexion, la prière, mais aussi par une vie commune au service d’une même mission pastorale.

A SCHOOL OF HOLINESS

In this spirit, the SJMV is very keen to promote the ministerial priesthood. It forms seminarists to the diocesan and presbyterial ministry. It offers a training space for young men either wanting to join the SJMV or train for priesthood by adopting its procedure. In order to fulfil its task, the SJMV has its own ‘training house’ headed by an SJMV’s moderator supported by a Council of members.

The Seminary welcomes both men recommended by bishops and those, who, privately expressed, their wish to enter. It is not compulsory to join the SJMV to be a seminarist but it is nevertheless essential to abide by its ideals. The propaedeutic allows for a formation and initial ascertainment of the vocation to become a diocesan priest.

Profoundly inspired by the grace of Ars and the charismatic drive of the SJMV, the Seminary can fully accomplish its mission: to train priests in the spirit of Saint John Mary Vianney. That’s also what the Church is asking for – “To ensure a formation allowing men called by God to the priesthood to become, through the Order’s sacrament, living images of Jesus Christ, Head and Shepherd of the Church.”

THE SPIRIT OF SJMV

“We have to support each other as true brothers ; as well balanced and authentic friendship in order to remain on the path. This does rectify as well as stimulate. The friendship we are creating for is the one leading us into holiness.”

Mgr Bagnard
