Meet Our Members

Fully Professed

Fully Professed Members of the DFW Sisters, Abbey of the Lone Star have all of the rights and privileges of a Member: they may vote, represent the Order and manifest as they feel called to do so.  Our Fully Professed Members serve the Order in many different roles; taken as a whole, they make the Order what it is.


Novices begin to manifest the outward appearance of a Sister/Guard. A Novice wears the whiteface and wimple, although she is only allowed to wear a pure white veil (or hat for Guards). With their Mother's or Father's help, they must plan, organize and throw an event in the community or a project that betters the Order. 


Postulants are provisional members of the House with no voting rights. They are tasked with getting to know the House, our mission, our sisters, and and must also learn the history of the Order. Postulants wear a simple version of whiteface and the required uniform that fits in with Order; a Catholic school girl or boy's uniform.


A Saint is a layperson whose life and accomplishments are in keeping with the Order’s philosophy and mission. They have gone above and beyond in their service to the community.


An Angel is a layperson who has made a huge contribution to the Order. These people have contributed to our paths as sisters helping us to become a stronger house and support the community.


A member who decides that they will need to be away from House events and responsibilities for more than 2 years but does not want to give up the Sisters or their Sister persona, may request to go into retirement (Member Emeritus).
