Ho do I go about starting a new religious order?

Please, I am about to start a new order of women religious in the catholic church
. What are the first step I should take? Is it wise to seek a shelter in an already existing religious home as my formation house till I have a house of my own? Please, how do I go about it, I need answers.
Thank you,
Sr jane

Dear Sister Jane,

First of all, find a bishop who will support you in this. This is absolutely essential. You are in our prayers.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
