After further discernment in either a St. Gemma or St. B.J. Labre House, the Vocation Incubator of the Holy Ghost is the next step.
 
The Consecration to the Holy Ghost will be made upon entry to the Incubator (if such a consecration has not already been made).
 
An Incubator retreatant may stay for up to three months.  They will wear the color of the order they are discerning.  As one discerner with the Benedictines commented, "I would want to know if I could wear black the rest of my life."
 
The Incubator will be within the enclosure, but in a separate building.  The Cloisterite Incubator Mistress or Master will live in the same building.
 
Here is a sampling of what Incubator retreatants might wear:
 
Carmelite & Poor Clare: brown jumper and blouse with black babushka
(If discerning the Poor Clare Colettines, the retreatant may go barefoot)
 
Augustinian winter; Benedictine; & Visitation: black jumper and blouse with black babushka
 
Pink Sisters (Holy Spirit Adoration Sisters): white jumper with pink blouse and white babushka
 
Sisters Adorers of the Precious Blood & Nuns of Perpetual Adoration: red jumper and white blouse with black babushka
 
Augustinians: depends on season--may be either a white jumper and blouse with black babushka (summer) or black jumper and blouse with black babushka (winter)
