Behind every priest or brother, there is a period of formation lasting on average 7 years, during which the men are solely dependent upon the province for their living expenses, health insurance, and tuition. On average, each man in formation costs our Province $42,000 dollars. In the last fiscal year alone, the Midwest Province spent nearly $800,000 for formation and vocation efforts. This number is projected to reach $1 million by 2019.
