Candidacy

The period of assessment and guidance is characterized by a strong experience of Christian living. The candidate will deepen the meaning of her baptismal consecration in which the religious consecration is rooted. She will be initiated into community and apostolic life in the spirit of the Institute and will seek to reach the degree of maturity necessary to freely and responsibily make her choice of vocation. (FMA Constitutions)

My life was filled with work and service, but God was calling me for more. When I realized He was calling me to religious life, I felt so unworthy. In awe of His continual love, I surrendered it all to Him and have begun the journey for which my heart has been made.
