Home > Formation Stages > Novitiate

The novitiate is the first chief stage of formation.It has to present Jesus Christ to the novices as the Model of perfection Whom they are to follow in the way of the evangelical counsels, as well as His Holy Mother, the special Patroness of our Congregation. During this stage of formation the novice becomes acquainted with the essential obligations of the religious life and puts into practice the evangelical counsels as means for acquiring perfect love, and gradually accustoms herself to the work of our congregation, skillfully combining    prayer with work.
