The Recently Ordained program envisions a tri-diocesan mandatory program of orientation for priests in the first three years after ordination. The program is developed and operated by the Sacred Heart Institute in cooperation with the Clergy Personnel offices of the three arch/dioceses.
The purpose of the program is drawn from The Basic Plan for the Ongoing Formation of Priests (USCCB). It intends to assist the transition of the newly ordained from seminary formation to pastoral ministry, and to assist the integration of the new priest into the local presbyterate and arch/diocese. Like the Basic Plan, this proposed program places special emphasis on the importance of the relationship between bishop and priest.
