May the Sacred Heart of Jesus be loved everywhere

PRENOVITIATE

Daughters of Holy Mary of the Heart of Jesus - USA

 

Temporarily, the former rectory serves as a Novitiate while the new facility with appropriate rooms is being built, so that American vocations can receive the first two years of initial formation in Steubenville.
During this period, through prayer, work, study and recreation, they participate in Community life and acquire an intimate experience and practical awareness of religious life in an environment that fosters the human skills of decision-making, love and self-sacrifice (cf. Directory 98).
Once they become Novices, they travel to Spain to continue their formation in the Novitiate Piedras Vivas.

In 2017, the first American vocation made her Perpetual Vows in Steubenville and the first two fruits of this Novitiate made their Temporary Vows in Galapagar (Spain).
