Home Poor Clares of Santa Barbara

Formation is a lifelong process as the nun continues her daily and hourly response to the call of Christ, her Bridegroom.

Initial formation comprises three stages:

Postulancy—one full year

Noviceship—one to two years

Simple temporary vows—three years

“When the time of temporary vows is completed, the sister makes her solemn profession whereby she is united to God and forever consecrated to Him by an outstanding act of love.”
