Postulant (Holy Orders, Monastic) 

In religious orders, postulancy is the time of pre-novitiate discernment and preparation. Postulants may live as guests in the religious community for a period of time to become acquainted with the religious life and to allow the community and superior to observe their suitability for the religious life.
