The Formation Process

Receiving the Breviary at Solemn Profession

Solemn Vows

At the end of her Triennial Profession, the Sister having fully discerned her vocation and completing her formation period, makes Solemn (or life time) Profession.  This fully incorporates her into the monastic community.  During the profession ceremony, she receives the double veil (black veil with white liner), ring and profession wreath, breviary and candle.
