1st Profession- Together

Each sister awaits the day when she can concerate herself to God forever in her perpetual profession. The vows are made once a year for five years and on the 6th she makes her commitment for the rest of her life.

1st Professon- receiving the emblem

Each sister also receives the emblem which every Daughter of St. Paul wears in
every nation throughout the world. These young women just prior to the 1st profession cermony participated in a cermony which we call Vistition. At which she accepts the habit and veil of the Daughters of St. Paul. We as the Province in the United States have chosen to keep to the traditional habit and veil believing it to be an outward sign
as well as a communication to all those we encounter that God loves them in
a very special way and is still chosing young people in the Church.

1st Profession-Receive Constitutions of the Daughters of St Paul

Each newly professed sister recieves the Constitutions or Directives and Rules of the Daughters of St Paul.

Offering of the Vows

This is each one of our three sisters offering themselves to God through the vows of Chastity, poverty and obedience living with her sisters among the Daughters of St. Paul for 1 year.
