November 1, on the 157th anniversary of the founding of the Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, at the Walendów convent, a ceremony of admitting seven new postulant. General Superior, M. Petra Kowalczyk, will attend. Holy Mass in the intention of the postulants will be celebrated in the convent chapel at 8.00 in the morning. The celebrations will be preceded by a day of recollection in the lectio divina convention.
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.
