Religious Habit

I’m a Dominican Novice in Ireland and we would wear our habits most of the time after our profession.

We are required by our rule to wear the Habit in our convents but we get a lot of flexibility when out and about.

I also believe the Franciscan orders have continued to observe the wearing of the Habit.
