After the initial period of discernment and preparation, Candidates who enter the Postulancy participate in Perpetual Adoration and communal liturgies while studying the basic truths of our faith and the spirituality of our Congregation. During the Postulancy, the young woman shares in our community life and prayer and has opportunities for experiencing the apostolates of the Sisters.
The purpose of the Postulancy is to help the Postulant enter into the mystery of her vocation. She is guided in the ability to identify this call of love and to make a genuine response. The Postulant is introduced to the spirituality of our congregation through classes and interactions with the Sisters.
"Being resolved to follow Christ we want to enter more into His life, and so seek to make our life conformable to His."
~ Blessed Maria Theresia
