For me, being received into the Novitiate means that something I have been imagining since I was nine will now become a reality. Not only will I receive a habit and veil, but I will be called "Sister" for the first time. I will learn to be open to the work of the Holy Spirit in a new and deeper way. I will learn about the life to which God has called me and I will learn to be the person God has created me to be.
We are a Catholic religious congregation of about 125 strong in the United States and about 1300 worldwide! God has blessed us with a special mission (or charism): to make visible the Merciful Love of Christ in our service.
