This is the stage when a young woman is discerning a vocation to Religious Life. We are getting to know her and she is getting to know us. If a young woman thinks that she has a vocation, we help her to discern. When a young woman is more certain of her vocation, a more serious relationship is formed to continue with the discernment. Tests are administered to see is she has the gifts necessary for religious life and she is helped to grow in her life with God.
