Question: How do I become a Daughter of Charity?

Here are the steps you’ll be invited to embark on:

Enquiry Stage

Write a letter of application to the vocation directress using one of the addresses below. A favourable reply will bear a note of invitation to any of our communities.


This is a short period of getting acquainted with the community through visits and/or live-in   experiences.


A period during which, having been found suitable, the candidate is sent to live in our community for six months; this is for her to know us and our way of life better.


This is a period of one and half year of living, learning and sharing in the life and work of the Sisters.

Seminary (Novitiate)

A time of deepening of faith and convictions; the Seminary Sister is initiated as a member of the community and shares in the life, spirit and service of the Daughters of Charity for two years.

Ongoing Formation

After the Seminary, the Sister is sent to a local community to continue her mission and formation. If she is found suitable, the Sister pronounces her Vows after a few years.

Formation continues for life!
