The Journey of Becoming a Catholic Sister


Formation is a process of preparation for young girls who express interest in joining the Institute. On a broader note, every Sister is under formation through on-going formation till death. The stages of initial formation include aspirancy, postulancy, novitiate, scholasticate, and temporary profession.

Each stage of formation entails keeping the young girls in a house designated for formation for them to embark on a journey of self-discovery, learning the rudiments of Religious Life according to our Institute, and discernment. We have formation houses in Ghana, Nigeria, and Kenya.
