When the Congregation and the young woman agree that she may indeed be called to be a Daughter of St. Paul, she is admitted into postulancy.
Entering the postulancy requires that a young woman is:
- Between the ages of 18-30
- In good health
The following qualities are essential in helping her develop as a Pauline sister:
- Deepening awareness of being called by God
- Sufficient psychological maturity and self-awareness
- Desire and ability to grow spiritually
- The will to offer herself to God in religious life through a free choice
- Desire and affinity for the mission of communicating Christ through the media
- Healthy habits in using the media
- A character that is open, generous, sincere, and available
- The desire to live as a member of a community and the ability to collaborate with others
"She who possesses knowledge, who has the intellectual gifts and will power, a tremendous capacity to love, a spirit of self-sacrifice, an ardent desire for holiness, and a consuming thirst for souls—let her come with confidence to the Daughters of St. Paul. She can spend herself completely in the Pauline apostolate…while her horizons stretch out before her, ever broader and more beautiful." - Blessed James Alberione, Founder
The discernment journey continues after entrance: Becoming a Daughter of St. Paul.
