The novitiate and postulate in Timor Leste have been separated. From January the postulate is in Ossu, where Sr Joanita Freitas is the postulant mistress. The novices live in the formation house in Manleuana (Dili) during the two-year novitiate. Sr. Eugenia Pereira guides the novices.
The five postulants were received by Sr. Eugenia on Mai 14th, after they started the postulancy the day before.
On May 31, 16 junior sisters renewed their vows. The temporary vows of two of them were extended to the perpetual vows.
