I have looked all over for the answer to this question:

What are the final vows a nun takes called?

For Roman Catholic Religious women the last vow is the solemn vow.:slight_smile:

Hi Jimdandy,

Sorry, but no. The last vows are called perpetual vows. Only the oldest orders have solemn perpetual vows, which, in principle, are harder to dissolve.
