- Living in the geographical area of St. Paul of the Cross Province – the eastern seaboard of the United States and Canada – click here.
- Have a high school diploma and a willingness and determination to pursue higher studies?
- Have the capacity and willingness to live out the vows of obedience, chastity and poverty?
Discernment takes time and requires personal contact with the Vocation Director and a mentor assigned to the candidate.
For further information about requirements or if you have any questions, please contact:
Fr. Ronan Newbold, CP, Vocation Director
If you do not live in the UNITED STATES OR CANADA, please visit the Passionist Congregation website to find a Passionist Community in your country. Many young people contact us from other countries: we cannot do anything for you from so far away. You need personal guidance in your own country for discernment. If the Passionists are not in your country, you may have to approach a congregation in your country with a similar lifestyle.
