The Novitiate is the period of formation during which a person who is already an Adult Communicant Member of Basileia becomes a Governing Member. The Novitiate begins with a Rite of Entrance and ends with a Rite of Incorporation. While the goal of the Catechumenate is to empower people to master Basileia’s charism, the purpose of the Novitiate is to build on this and empower people to re-master Basileia’s charism in new ways that no one has thought of before in order fulfill to our calling, especially to lift the fatherless, widowed, poor, oppressed, prisoners and sick.
