Reception to the African Novitiate

Novitiate Reception

Eleven novices were accepted into the School Sisters of Notre Dame’s African Novitiate on Aug. 17, 2013, in Sunyani, Ghana. The theme of their reception was “Trusting in God’s Love, We Respond to God’s Call.”

As novices, they will seek to deepen their relationship with Christ, which will be the heart of their religious life. Through solitude, prayer, study, life in community, and some ministry experience, they will get to know more fully the various aspects of SSND life, including the vows of poverty, celibacy and obedience.
