Life can sometimes feel like a revolving door, and no more so than in September, which is so often a time of new beginnings, comings and goings...
As we begin this month we bid farewell to Barbara, who returns to Ireland for the final stage of her novitiate. She will live in Dublin, working with the sisters in the parish and local projects, as she continues discerning her call, accompanied by our love, prayer and good wishes.
... Meanwhile, we welcome Anna, as she moves to Newcastle to begin her candidacy with us. This is a time of discovery and discernment, and marks the first stage of formation and incorporation. Candidates begin to learn about the spirituality and mission of the Society, and what it means to be a Religious of the Sacred Heart, through being part of an apostolic community and the wider provincial community, through reading and reflection and being accompanied by a member of the formation team.
Please join us in praying for both Barbara and Anna, and for all our candidates, novices and the women God is calling to journey with us.
