Collaborative Dominican Novitiate Five women share experience of becoming Dominican
Five women have begun their initial formation as vowed women religious at the Collaborative Dominican Novitiate (CDN) in St. Louis, Missouri. The CDN experience lasts for 10 months, beginning in August until the end of June. The purpose of the canonical year in the CDN is to provide a quality experience of Dominican community life, prayer, study, ministry, exposure to and practice of preaching skills, and personal growth for the novices. CDN marked its 25th anniversary this year.
