FTIM (Madagascar)

FTIM (Madagascar)

Inter-monastery theological formation in Madagascar.
The contemplative monasteries of Madagascar and the Indian Ocean come together every year for training sessions for superiors, formators and cellarers.

Since 2007, a training course in theology and philosophy has been in place for young monks and nuns.

In March 2023, studies were reorganised and the course was renamed: the Studium Inter-monastères de Madagascar (SIM) became the Formation Théologique Inter-monastères de Madagascar (FTIM). It is open to all young professed men and women (temporary and solemn), and lasts six or seven years, with three ten-day sessions per year, and an examination session. In each monastery concerned, a tutor is appointed to accompany the students; these study tutors normally attend the sessions.
