Entering the Novitiate: 
The reception of the novice is private.  Before the Community she expresses her desire to enter this next phase of formation.  She receives several blessed objects: the white veil; her copy of the Constitutions to study; a small Rosary of the Seven Dolors made by one of the Sisters; a medal of the Immaculate Heart of Mary; and her Sister name.
