Postulancy in the Order of Mercy

According to a postulant of the Order of Mercy, the average day begins with the Angelus, then includes visits to either the Mercedarian school, volunteer work by the postulants at the nursing home, or visits to Catholic patients at the hospital. Constant prayer is necessary, and the day always includes morning and evening prayer.

Vincent, our postulant, also answers questions such as when they receive their habits, what the Angelus bell means, and where Mercedarian homes are located in the U.S.
