Daughters of St. Elizabeth of the Visitation

Welcome graphic

***A proposed charism that will start as a Congregational Recluse for the CAMM/CCMM.***

The Daughters of St. Elizabeth of the Visitation will be cloistered teachers following the Salesian/Visitation way of life.  These sisters may have boarding schools attached to their monasteries.  Their habit will be blue, instead of black.
 
Formation will be one year of novitiate and three years of temporary vows, hence making this one of the "Betty Orders."  Spiritual maturity is paramount to biological age.

The sisters will follow the Rule of St. Augustine. . .

and

the Spiritual Directory of St. Francis de Sales.

The constitutions will be based on that of the Second Federation of the Visitation.  An attached academy will be considered for remunerative work.  The nuns will be cloistered.  In the original Visitation, the nuns were up at 5am and retired at 10pm.  In this charism, there will likely be a similar horarium.
