During this Juniorate sisters live and share their life in the community and mission, they go for their secular studies and minimum 1 year of Theology too. All through these years along with the Community leader another Sister is appointed to accampany them. Every year they gather together to share their life experiences and pray and renew their vows; which energieses them further for their religious life. At the 7th or 8th year of their vows they are sent to tertiate to prepare them for the final commitment. During this year they have a retreat for 30 days as our Constitutions say; and at the end commit themselves finally.
