Upon returning to the National Novitiate, located in Covington, KY, Sr. Nicole will process her service in Texas, take retreat, visit family, and resume day-to-day formation service and lessons. In August 2017, Sr. Nicole will begin her second major experience by serving with Sisters of Notre Dame at St. Claire Regional Medical Center in Morehead, KY.
