The application process assists both Loreto and you to discern your suitability to live a fruitful and happy life as a Loreto Sister.
Women we seek are those who have a relationship with God and a passion to serve others, who are aware of their humanity and weakness but have the self-knowledge and openness that allows them to grow and be able to follow Jesus as one of us now and in the future.
The application process involves:
- Interviews with Loreto sisters
- Letters of reference
- Psychological testing
- Medical examination
- Certificates of Baptism and Confirmation
All of the material is presented to the Province Leader of the Australia South East Asia Province who, in consultation with her Council, makes the final decision regarding admission to Candidacy.

The stages of formation include:
- Temporary Profession
