While discernment may take place in any Eudist house, the real work of formation needs its own space.


The Church recommends that seminarians have a place to live in community
while casa25studying. It should have a chapel for their meditation and daily prayer life, enough space for study and recreation, and a priest in charge of keeping order and ministering to the discerners (known as the Rector).

Especially for the first years of formation, this is less than ideal because it its difficult to create the structures so valuable for their growth in a living space shared with working priests.
