During the period of temporary vows, the sister continues her formation in view of harmonizing the knowledge she has obtained with the mission she is called to live as a Sister of the Sacred Heart of Jesus.

In line with an integral formation of the person, according to each one’s needs and the circumstances involved, this is a time to:

  • continue theological or pastoral studies in order to deepen her faith and to be able to give account of it;
  • begin or finish professional studies so as to commit herself with competency to an apostolic service faithful to the Mission of the Congregation;
  • emphasize the development of human and spiritual maturity;
  • actively participate in the community life of the Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus;
  • be involved in professional work;
  • learn to progressively integrate contemplation and action.
