Profession Photos

We have a first installment of some photos to share -- thanks to our kind benefactors, family and friends of our sisters who shared the role of "photographer." This set of pictures is a collection of highlights. In our next installment, we shall share a few more of our community customs and explain some of the symbols used during the rite of religious profession.

Sister Anne E and Sister Maureen de Chantal stand for the examination prior to the homily.

Prior to pronouncing their vows, the sisters prostrate during the Litany of the Saints and are covered with a pall as a reminder of their baptism and the promises made for them at the moment they became children of God.

Sister Maureen reads the formula for profession.

Sister Anne Elizabeth reads the formula for profession.

The newly professed sign and date their vows.

More pictures to come. . . stay tuned!
