Novitiate Step

Novices holding candles for light as a symbol of truth

This is a time to deepen self-awareness and the personal relationship with God through discernment and reflection. The novice will have regular times of prayer, become familiar with the Spiritual Exercises of St. Ignatius, experience community, undertake apostolic work; live according to the spirit of the vows and assess whether she can live according to the traditions and Constitutions of the Helpers.
There is usually an international experience and an opportunity to meet with novices from other countries. The novitiate lasts for 2 years after which the novice can request to make the first vows.
