Theology course begins after Regency and it lasts for four years. This period has to take into account three aspects of formation among many others: religious and Carmelite formation, priestly formation and intellectual or doctrinal formation.


The growth process of the religious Carmelite vocation of the students continues in this stage so that they may lead more fully the proper life of our Order and carry out its mission more suitably. This stage, however, has to aim at forming the priestly personality of the students to whom the lord has given this call.


Although the specific priestly formation ought to be present all through the various phases of formation, it receives special care at the time of theological studies. Such a formation is to be spiritual and apostolic, doctrinal and practical, taking into account the needs of the Church and the circumstances of human persons and times.
