PREPARATION FOR FINAL VOWS: THE JUNIORATE
The juniorate stage is primarily a time to go more deeply into the spiritual life, a time to allow each sister to receive from God the grace:
- to grow in freedom and gradually integrate her life so as to commit herself totally to the service of the Lord and his mission;
- to be confirmed in her vocation, that is, in the call to follow Christ in the religious missionary life, as a way of living the evangelical life. The interior confirmation of the Holy Spirit and the exterior confirmation of the Superiors who decide on admission to final vows enable the sister to commit herself in the Congregation freely and definitively.
