The Society of Jesus considers formation as “priority of priorities.” Fr. Peter-Hans Kolvenbach SJ developed a set of documents on the various stages, concerns, and objectives of formation in the Society. In 2014, Fr. Adolfo Nicolás SJ launched a programme of renewal of intellectual formation in the Society, with special emphasis on context, content, competencies, and charisms. The Formation Centres in the Conference have initiated programmes of review and revision of their curricula in line with the directives of Fr. Nicolás.
