There are a variety of levels to becoming a full-fledged sister. At each stage the membership votes on moving you to the next level to becoming a fully professed Sister.

Level 1: Aspirant
You are considered an Aspirant when you formally declare your interest/intent to join at one of our general membership meetings. This period typically lasts for at least three months; during this time you should be developing relationships with the Sisters, participating in our events and watching how we work and operate. At this stage you are not a member and have no rights within the Order.
Level 2: Postulant
As a Postulant, you are a Member of the Order although you still have no voting rights. In addition to continuing to further your relationships within the Order, you are required to attend all of our meetings, many of our events and you must spend at least six hours in our Archives learning the history of the Order. Postulancy last for at least six months. Near the end of that time, if the Order still agrees that you are a good fit, you will need to find a Fully Professed Member to be your main sponsor (your Mother).
Level 3: Novitiate
The Novitiate (Novice) begins to manifest the outward appearance of a Sister. A Novice wears the whiteface and is only allowed to wear a pure white veil. Despite this, the general public still perceives them to be a Sister and their interactions will radically change. The Novitiate lasts for at least six months. During this time you are a member without full member rights.
Level 4: Fully Professed Sister
As a Fully Professed Member of the Order, you have all of the rights and privileges of a Member: you may vote, represent the Order and manifest as you feel called to do so. Fully Professed Members also may hold office and help shape the direction and development of the Order. Our Fully Professed Members serve the Order in many different roles; taken as a whole, they make the Order what it is.
