Reception to the Pre-Novitiate
A weekend of great joy began on Friday, 6 March at St Mary’s Convent, Blaauwbosch, KwaZulu Natal. Sisters of our Congregation gathered from Boksburg and the Durban area, London and Rome, and were joined by family members, to welcome three women into the Pre-Novitiate.
Sister Felicity Cunningham OP, Congregation Prioress, received on behalf of the Congregation Andiswa, Ngan and Minh Ha and welcomed them with great joy. They begin a new stage of their vocation journey, seeking to respond to God’s call to them to live the Dominican Charism with us as Newcastle Dominican Sisters.
We keep them in our prayers, together with Sister Busi who will accompany them on this journey of formation and the Community at Marian House, Bokburg.
Each of the women being received into the Pre-Novitiate reads an agreement between her and the Congregation, accepting her full participation in the journey of initial formation.
