The International Novitiate in New York City covers all phases of initial formation especially candidacy, novitiate and preparation for final vows.
The primary mission of the International Novitiate is to initiate a spiritual and missionary journey that favors conditions for reciprocal knowledge between the candidate and the Institute of the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus. During this discernment, the women in formation are given the opportunity to know the fundamental requirements of the Cabrinian Missionary Life so that they may respond freely to their call whether it is religious life or a lay missionary vocation.
The International Novitiate receives MSC junior sisters from other countries to prepare them to take the final step for perpetual commitment. It is a time of intense reflection and study of the vows as well as an opportunity to participate in the mission of the community. This international experience helps the junior sister to integrate her culture with other cultures.
