Canon 545

1. The one who transfers must go through the entire novitiate,

except if the superior general or the superior of the monastery

sui iuris, each of them with the consent of the council, on account of special circumstances, reduces the time of the novitiate, but not below six months. During the novitiate, the vows

remaining in force, the rights and particular obligations which

the member had in the previous order or congregation are held

suspended, and the member is bound by the obligation to obey the

superiors of the new religious institute and the director of novices also in virtue of the vow of obedience. 2. After having

completed the novitiate, one who was perpetually professed at the

moment of transfer shall publicly make profession according to

the statutes of the religious institute to which he or she transferred. By this new profession one is fully united to the new

institute, and, if he is a cleric, he is enrolled in it as a cleric as well. But one who has thus far made temporary profession,

shall make a temporary profession in the same manner for at least

three more years, except in the case when he or she completed the

entire novitiate of three years in the monastery sui iuris to

which he or she transferred. 3. If the member does not make

the profession in the religious institute to which he or she

transferred, that member must return to the previous institute,

unless in the meantime the time of profession has expired. 4.

In respect to goods and dowry can. 488, 4 shall be observed.
