Novices take break from their prayers to walk in the garden at Santa Catalina Convent. The young nuns never leave convent grounds and live a life of contemplation in Arequipa, Peru. The older nuns allow the young women free time once a day to help them adjust to the cloistered, regimented life. Having just left their families they will never see again, the vow of commitment the novices take is a serious lifelong decision.
