Our five-day comprehensive evaluation provides insight into the challenges an individual is facing. 

Comprehensive evaluation

This five-day evaluation (Monday-Friday) can be helpful in assessing challenges facing a seminarian, priest or religious, and includes clinical, psychological and spiritual assessments, and consultation with a physician.

Components include:

  • Laboratory tests and physical examination
  • Clinical interview
  • Psychosocial history interview
  • Spiritual assessment
  • Psychological evaluation
  • Neuropsychological evaluation


At the conclusion of the evaluation, both the ecclesiastical superior and the evaluee receive comprehensive oral feedback and recommendations, and a detailed written report. 

Saint Luke Institute's staff is committed to ensuring those who come to us receive the best care possible. An evaluation may result in a range of recommendations, including outpatient therapy, services at another institution or the residential program at Saint Luke Institute.
