There is an urgent need to form our religious, in this technological, materialistic and globalizing world, to be missionaries, to be evangelizers. The task of selection and formation of the candidates for religious life is rather complex one. The future of any religious institutes depends on how we for our young men of today. Religious formation is not merely implementing certain programs through qualitative techniques, teaching some doctrinal elements, acquisition of divine and human knowledge and bringing the formee under discipline. The true formation is much more than that. It is a whole process which start by accompanying, a young boy from the stage of aspirant up to the last step of formation. This include such a times and moments of vocational session. Where the young men are invited first of all to discover quite closely a religious family, but much be assisted in their discernment of religious vocation.
To help them in this process of discernment, every year, our religious family, the Sons of Divine Providence present here in Kenya organize three sessions called "Come and See" for the aspirants. For the account of this academic year 2014 - 2015, the first session was held from Monday 15th to Saturday, September 20th. It was attended by six young men from various parts of the country. For one week, with the help of Father Paul Mboche, Father Peter Wambulwa and Father Stan Achi they have tried to find an answer to what seems to them a call of God to walk in the Congregation of the Little Work of Divine Providence.
They also rub to our students in philosophy who have given them as good seniors, the possibility to discover the house and to become familiar in a very short time.
Appointment is made for the second session to be held probably next November or December.
