Maymyo, Myanmar - Since the Formation Community in Kalaw was closed down this early year 2019, the Formation in Maymyo becomes a combination of the “Come and See” Program and the Aspirancy Program. Meanwhile, there are six “Come and See” candidates and three Aspirants. Every year, the program lasts for eight months from January to August. The candidates are required to attend the UDE (University of Distance Education) at the end of the program on October and November. Roughly it will take three to four years for the candidates to get a certain college degree. After completing their higher education, they can continue applying for the Postulancy (in the Philippines).
There are four Brothers who are in charge of this program; Br. Hilary FSC (Community Director), Br.Josaphat FSC (Program Director), Br. Philip FSC (Bursar), and Br. Lucas FSC (Staff). (Text & Photos: Br. Josaphat Ai Saw Hung Htoo FSC)
