Sister Pauline will also spend a few months with Precious Blood Sisters in California in order to experience a variety of ministries. Next year, her novitiate will continue with a religious formation program in Chicago.
Each novice is different, and we try to meet her needs, fulfill all of the “requirements” of the novitiate, and provide her with a meaningful experience. With the help of God, our foundress Mother Brunner, and all of our Sisters, this novitiate experience will prepare Pauline to be a faithful Sister of the Precious Blood.
The Congregation welcomes Sister Pauline and continues to pray for her and for all in discernment and formation.
