Admission to the Postulate and Novitiate and Pronouncing of the First Vows in Indonesia
Thanks be to God’s Providence that gave rise to new ‘shoots’, the youngest generation of the Sisters of Divine Providence! On the Solemnity of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, August 15, 2021, we celebrated the admission of Veni and Vero to the postulate, Sr. Bernadetta, Sr. Paulina and Sr. Sirila to the novitiate, and Sr. Ignatia, who pronounced her First Vows, was admitted to the Juniorate.
The admission of the postulants and novices took place as part of a special celebration, while the first vows were pronounced during the Eucharistic celebration. The new postulants received the Cross of the Congregation and the congregational document "Word of Hope", whereas the new novices received a religious name and the constitutions.
Since we are still in the pandemic time, this thanksgiving celebration was celebrated in a simple form and with few guests only.
May God bless the ways of the new postulants, novices and the new junior-sister! God calls, blesses and grants His mercy on their vocational path.
