Postulancy

 

This is a time of transition and of learning to live the life of a Parish Visitor of Mary Immaculate.


 

 

 


Novitiate

During a two-year novitiate, the novice is instructed in the basic requirements of religious life and begins living the evangelical counsels. The novice is helped to develop an intimate union with Christ and to dedicate herself gradually to the missionary apostolate.

 

 

 


Temporary Vows

Vows that are periodically professed during the five to six years of juniorate formation. Junior professed Sisters are assisted in developing the maturity required to make a perpetual commitment to the life and mission of the Congregation and to integrate more fully their religious and apostolic formation.

 

 



Perpetual Vows

At perpetual profession, the Sister consecrates herself to God for life. She becomes fully incorporated into the Parish Visitors of Mary Immaculate and assumes the obligation perpetually to observe the evangelical counsels of chastity, poverty, and obedience and to live according to the Congregation’s constitutions and statutes.

 



 

 

Our Habit

A navy blue habit (light blue may be worn in the summer) with a white collar, black veil, a medallion of the Immaculate Conception, and a ring received at perpetual profession of vows.

 


Our Foundress had a great devotion to the
Sacred Heart of the Good Shepherd.
