On December 8th, the Solemnity of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, in the convent of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy in Rabka, a ceremony of admission to postulate will be held for candidates. After the religious ceremonies, Holy Mass will be celebrated by Fr. Rafał Radwański in the chapel of the convent in the intention of the postulants.
The period of postulancy is the first trial in religious life. It is intended, first of all, to gradually introduce new sisters into the life of the Congregation, and also to complement and extend their religious knowledge, to shape the culture of coexistence with others according to the etiquette, to develop the practice of natural virtues and to facilitate a closer familiarization with the life and apostolic mission of the Congregation. This is achieved through attending lectures and study, but also through prayer and work in the community of sisters.
