Timeline For Catholic Sisterhood

I'm writing a story with a character who is going through the process of becoming a Catholic Sister, specifically of the Ursuline Sister.

I know there are different phases in becoming a sister (Affiliacy, Candidacy, Novitiate) and according to the official Ursuline website, Candidacy lasts for two years.

What I would like to know is if a young woman starts her Affiliacy at age 18, how long might the process last and at what point would she become a full Sister?

Also, how does the mass or ceremony of becoming a sister actually work?

Thanks! :)
