Requirements

Be it Done unto Me According
According to Your Word

The first prerequisite is a serious prayer life and a strong desire to grow spiritually that manifests itself in a sincere pursuit of the virtues. A candidate must have fidelity to the Holy Father and have the will to integrate himself fully into the Holy Church. Religious life is about the Evangelical Counsels (poverty, chastity and obedience), by which we give everything up to gain everything in Christ and in the community. Love for Eucharistic adoration, interiority and the love for silence are essential to our particular way of living these Counsels.

Catholic Priesthood - Order of the Holy Cross

The minimum age to join the Order is 18 years. As a rule, we do not accept candidates who are over 35 years old. Candidates for the priesthood should have completed high school. Aspirancy for becoming a “lay” professed brother requires some form of professional training.
