In our Catholic tradition when we talk of preparing people to share more effectively in the mission of Jesus we speak of ‘formation’. Formation is much more than training or education because it is about the internalisation of values, attitudes and ways of seeing and the maturing of faith.

As lay people take on roles in Jesuit ministries, formation has become important for them as well. Alongside formation programs within each ministry, the Province has a Province-wide induction program for all staff.
