“To live according to the
spirit is to do what faith,
hope and love teaches
us, both in spiritual and
secular things.”

Good News
Kerry Knight of Cincinnati, Ohio, began pre-entrance with the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati on Monday, Dec. 12 during a simple prayer service at Visitation House. Kerry is a surgical nurse at Children’s Hospital and co-founder of David’s Place, a shelter for LGBTQ+ youth. She is studying to become a nurse practitioner, and she regularly attends St. Francis Xavier Parish.

According to the Constitutions, pre-entrance is a six-month to one-year period of preparation during which a person and the congregation get to know one another and mutually discern readiness for affiliation. A pre-entrant meets monthly with the vocation director, regularly attends spiritual direction, occasionally spends time with a designated contact Sister, and attends appropriate congregational gatherings. Toward the end of pre-entrance, the pre-entrant and vocation director engage in a process to evaluate readiness for affiliation.
