Postulants Enter Novitiate Phase

Postulants Judith Timmerman and Debra Boucaud were welcomed into the novitiate during Evening Praise on June 23, the vigil of St. John the Baptist. Both novices chose the option of wearing white veils. As novices, their names will be Novice Judith Maria (Judith) and Novice Michaela Marie (Debra). At the service, the community accepted the responsibility to provide a nurturing environment to lead them to a deeper relationship with God and their sisters. During the next two years, they will study and internalize the Rule of St. Benedict under the guidance and direction of their formation director, Sister Alice O'Brien.
