(L) Sr. Rose Therese, (R) Sr. Fasutina Marie
At the conclusion of the Novitiate program, the Novice pronounces her first vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience. At this time, she is considered to be a Junior Sister, and will be given an assignment in one of the homes of the province according to her readiness and general inclination. Educational opportunities will be presented and training will be given in connection with her work with the aged, youth, or children.
A healthy combination of prayer, work, education apostolate, and recreation is the norm during the Junior Sisters period of formation. The time of Juniorate is normally five years.
