Yankton Benedictines Novitiate FormationA look through the doorway of the Formation Room
This is a time of integration and preparation to enable the novice to better recognize her vocation to monastic life, experience the manner of living this life, be formed in mind and heart by its spirit, and be tested for her intention and suitability to live this way of life. The novitiate may be one to two years in length and is spent at Sacred Heart Monastery.
