A quick glossary:
Aspirant: One who is formally discerning a vocation with a specific religious community.
Postulant: From the Latin postulare, meaning to ask; aspirant has asked to be admitted into the community to try his vocation
Novice: Postulant acquires the habit (if one is worn) and possibly a new name-in-religion, and takes first steps within the community during this period of intense study and formation. Novice may leave (or be asked to leave) at any point as discernment continues.
Temporary Professed (aka Junior or first-vowed): Community and novice have discerned that this person and this community seem to be right for each other. Temporary vows are made, sometimes renewable at specific periods. Formation and discernment continue. Separation from the community is still possible.
Final Profession/Full Profession: The community member makes vows for all of my life, to serve God within the community.
