Then those who express the wish of accepting such mode of living have the first stage of formation - that is postulate in Starokonstantinov. the second stage of postulate the candidates go through in the Capuchins Monastery in Stalova Vola in Rozvadov (Poland). The next formation is a year of a noviciate in Sedzishov Malopolski. After giving the first monastic vows Friars have the formation of a postnoviciate in Krakov in the High Theological Seminary (candidates for pristhood) or in juniority( for Friars who are not prists). After finishing the primary formation the Friars give the eternal vows of poverty, obedience, chastity.
