The process of joining the Servants of the Word has various stages, and lasts approximately 7 years. First one becomes an affiliate, often without living in a Servants of the Word house. During that time one simply gets to know the brothers. Eventually one moves in with them, in one of their houses (see Contact Us). A major next step follows when one enters formation, thus expressing willingness to actually learn what our life entails and begin to live according to our rule of life. This is done in the region where one comes from (see Meet The Brothers) initially, followed by two years in our international formation house in Ann Arbor, Michigan. After that period of formation a brother can make his first full (temporary) commitment, lasting for a year. After having renewed that commitment at least once, he can make his lifelong commitment.
