The Sodalit formation is divided into two periods. The first, called the “initial formation period,” is the most structured phase that leads to the act of full apostolic availability in perpetuity. After completing this stage, the sodalits continue with the “permanent training period”.

Our brother Mijailo Bokan, Coordinator of the Ratio Formationis of the Sodalitium, shared about the meeting: “This meeting was of great benefit to us, not only because we met in person, but also because its location allows the participation of Cardinal Ghirlanda, who is the Pontifical Delegate for the formation of our community and that of other brothers in faith who work in different areas of formation”.

He also emphasized the importance of those in charge of the different training stages meeting in order to be in tune and gradually accompany the training itinerary.

Reflections and dialogues

During the five days, knowledge, experiences and perspectives were shared, with the aim of better accompanying the training itinerary of the Sodalits. The essence of this meeting lay in reflection and dialogue on crucial topics in training, addressed by a diverse group of experts in each subject.
