Mission
Devoted to a life of contemplation, the mottoes of the community are: "Adoration, Reparation and Suffering" and "Fidelity, Constancy and Generosity". The sisters' life of prayer is a true living of the Gospel and it is in every way apostolic. Directing all their energy toward a deepening of their relationship with God, their life together in community witnesses to the Presence of God here on earth.
Qualifications
Must be motivated by faith, be of sufficient maturity and good health, and possess personal qualities that give promise of being able to serve the Lord and the community.
Formation
The pre-postulancy period entails correspondence and personal contact with the candidate and a period of residence in the enclosure of at least two months. During postulancy, candidates are introduced to religious life in general, contemplative life in particular, and the spirit of the Foundress, with studies in theology, scripture, liturgy and other disciplines. Entrance into the novitiate, which lasts two year, is preceded by a five-day retreat. The purpose of the novitiate is the intense spiritual and religious formation of the novice so that she may learn to live in intimate union with Christ in the mystery of His Precious Blood. Temporary profession follows for three years, then perpetual profession.
Age range/limit
20-45
Belated vocations?
