New SND Blog!
April 7, 2016 by SNDCA Communications Office
We are so excited to have our Novices and their Directors sharing thoughts on becoming a Sister of Notre Dame on the new Blog: Nuns in the Making. Join Sisters Marla, Mayra, Nicole and Rose (pictured above), as they share about their life the National Novitiate community.
What is a National Novitiate you ask?
Well, the National Novitiate is where women in the US who are training to become Sisters of Notre Dame go. While there, they learn how to be a sister, brush up on some theology, gain a strong foundation of prayer, and study the history and spirituality of the Sisters of Notre Dame. Sisters Mayra and Nicole became novices on February 20, 2016 and will spend two more years learning, praying, and preparing to take their first vows as sisters. Sisters Marla and Rose are acting as mentors and teachers to the two new novices and will walk with them in their continuing journey in sisterhood.
But why are they writing this blog?
They want to share our journeys with you! They will share the experiences, reflections, challenges, and transformations that are bound to happen. We hope you share this with anyone who might be interested. Historically, nuns have been this great mystery and fascination, especially in the media. But we are here to show you that we are human just like you.
