Novitiate - Door To The Formation Center
“Come my daughter listen to me, I will teach you the fear of the Lord”
From Ps. 34:12

A 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 and experience the manner of living this life. She will be formed in mind and heart by its spirit, and 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.
