Steps to Become a Sister


Steps to Become a Franciscan Sister

The Journey of Formation in our Franciscan Community includes the steps of Postulancy, Novitiate, Temporary Profession and Continuing Formation as a Perpetually Professed member. We grow in confidence  in the God who walks with us.  We grow in our God-given personal qualities while incarnating the life, spirit and Gospel mission which are our heritage as Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity.

Everything that Francis did in his day was to make gospel values and Jesus and God real for people and of his time. And for himself. And I think that’s why Franciscan sensibility today has relevance. Because it challenges us today to bring people to a sense of Jesus and God. And there’s more to life than the here and now.”
