INTRODUCTION

The Secular Franciscan Order (OFS) whose members are called to live a vocation of charity, a vocation of faithfully following the Gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ, includes among its stages, initial formation -- the time after admission to the Order and before profession. This time is intended to deepen the maturation of the vocation, to enhance the experience of evangelical life in fraternity and to gain a better knowledge of the Order (Art.40 GGCC).
