J., director of the New Province of the of Jesus. Frank's S Years In the Location 5903 "R" St. 666=9293 In The Heights Center Irishman" RX Filled As vocation director for the Jesuits in the South, Father Buddendorff talks with young men in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Arkansas, Texas, Florida, South Carolina, Georgia, Tennessee and New Mexico -- men who are interested in a lifetime commitment to serving God and their com- munities. The number of men en- tering the order seems to be on the upswing these days, the Jesuit says. The average applicant is in his early - to mid-20's, has a college degree and comes from a middle class, strongly religious background. "The average applicant is older than he used to be," Father Buddendorff says. Some applicants have master's degrees or Ph.D's. All applicants must go through the same, thorough screening process. This in- volves first a visit by either Father Buddendorff or a Jesuit in the candidate's town. Psychological testing follows, along with written evaluation by references and three interviews with Jesuits. If the Provincial accepts the candidate, the noviceship begins: two years of prayer, work and study learning the traditions, rules and ex- in... For...

"We are kind of par- ticular about who gets in," Father Buddendorff says of this extensive application process. Later will come years of more study and training in philosophy and theology before final vows are taken. But before that, associates - - men in the noviceship -- are given the chance to "get to know the Jesuit way of life," Father Buddendorff explains. "It gives them time to grow socially, to understand what the vows (of poverty, chastity and obedience) mean. "We live in a different world today," the vocation director says. "A lot more is demanded of them on the inside. These men are acting out of inner conviction." During their training period, the associates -- 35 in the New Orleans Province this year -- attend several retreats and do a lot of traveling: experiments designed to see how well the men work with people, Father Buddendorff says. At the end of the two-year period, the first vows are taken. The Jesuit worked as vocation director for 10 years before taking a sabbatical in 1977. Now he is back, heavily involved in the work he calls "very challenging." Anyone interested in learning more about entering the Society of Jesus can contact Father Buddendorff at Loyola University, 6363 St. Charles Avenue, New Orleans, Louisiana 70118.
