Becoming a Nun

Novice in the garden

A life so radically concerned with the priority and sufficiency of God makes searching demands. Some newcomers may find themselves on the threshold of a life long pilgrimage in this place where they discover true wholeness and the fulfilment of their deepest desire; others may come to discern that God is calling them on to a different form of Christian discipleship.

Time and space to grow in prayer and the responsibilities of the common life are needed; it will be at least five and a half years before a novice finally offers her life to God by taking the Benedictine vows of stability, conversion of life and obedience. These root her in the monastic way as lived in this particular community.
