Called to put on Christ
Religious formation is an ongoing period of prayer and discernment. This is what initial formation into the religious life is like in our Congregation.

Our vow of chastity allows us to live a life for God, for Love alone. Each day, Jesus is at the heart of our work and at the forefront of our minds. We espouse ourselves to God, foregoing an earthly marriage, and begin living the eternal marriage feast here and now.
By vowing to live a life of poverty we make room in our hearts for all God’s children. The freer we are from the distractions of the world, the freer we are to live as Jesus did. In imitation of Christ’s poor life on earth, we simplify our lives with hopes of being transformed, more and more, into His likeness.
When we profess a vow of obedience we vow to live by God’s will as it is made known to us by our loving Superiors. As Mary did, without worry or questioning, we simply say “yes”. By our “yes” we are set free to confidently love God in whatever way He calls us to love Him.
Our vow of Charity unites us uniquely to the Body of Christ. We vow to be ready and available to serve as God calls us in each present moment. We strive to love in the heart of the Church.
