Temporary Profession of Vows

During this time of Temporary Profession, the vowed member seeks to deepen her Dominican Apostolic Life by continuing to interiorize and integrate all that she has learned and experienced during her time as a Candidate and Novice.

The study program for those in Temporary Profession is designed according to the needs of the individual.  Workshops, articles, and books on a variety of topics may be considered for study.

The length of this phase is not less than three years nor longer than six years.

Here are videos of our Sisters making their Temporary Profession of Vows (or First Profession of Vows):


“I have made vows to you, God; with offerings I will fulfill them…That I may walk before God in the light of the living.” (Psalm 56:13-14)
