Formation Process

The First Step is Formation is Inquiry:

We extend our invitation to Catholic Women who are in the process of discernment and are keenly interested in our community to get in touch with us. Your visit to our community provides us with an opportunity to engage with one another, exchange ideas, and mutually understand whether you would like to join our community. Through meaningful dialogue and constructive discussions, we can help clarify your decision to enter into our community.

 Second, a time of Living In a Community or Affiliation:

During this three to four-month period, you will have the opportunity to engage in valuable discussions and gain a deeper understanding of your vocation. You'll be introduced to the enriching Augustinian Spirituality, our fulfilling day-to-day consecrated life, and the profound significance of taking vows. This experience will aid you in making a well-informed decision about your future path.

 Third, Postulancy:

The postulancy period, which lasts from six to eighteen months, lays the groundwork for the novitiate. During this period, you will live with the Sisters in the convent and gain insight into our Augustinian way of life within our community. It is also a time for you to gain a greater understanding of religious life and to discern if our community is where God is calling you to be. Together, we will discern if this is the right path for you.

Fourth, the Novitiate:

During the two years of novitiate, you will have the opportunity to strengthen your relationship with God. This period is dedicated to delving into the theology of vows, our Augustinian spirituality, and the history and charism of our community. You will also begin practicing what you learn through daily communal living. Moreover, you will have the chance to explore, at a deeper level, what it means to be a member of our Augustinian community of Catholic Sisters. Upon completion of the two years, the novice will profess her first vows.  

Fifth, Temporary Profession:

After three years of temporary vows, the Sister renews her vows for three more years. After that period, the Sister then professes her perpetual vows.
