Purpose: To help vocational and priestly formators acquire a more precise educational expertise in the realization of the task - entrusted to them by their Bishops, Superiors or Major Superiors - of discernment and vocational accompaniment of seminarians and religious men and women.

Methodology: Inspired by the Ignatian Spirituality, the Centre seeks to elaborate an interdisciplinary and dialogic model of formation (theology, spirituality, psychology and other human sciences). Courses and seminars, in-situ visits, exchanges in small working groups (linguistic), thematic workshops favor a theoretical and practical preparation of the role of the formator. In addition, the proposal of a personal accompaniment - spiritual direction, vocational growth interviews, group dynamics - are intended to help prospective formators arrive at a synthesis and a personal integration.
