ceremonies - October 7th 2023
The Abbey hosted a joint ceremony for the solemn professions and clothings of our sisters from the Abbey and our daughter house in Ava. A beautiful and joyous day! Sr. Martina, Sr. Mary Petra and Sr. Veronica made their solemn profession of vows. Our postulants were all clothed as novices and received new names. Sr. Reese became Sr. Antonea, Sr. Isabel is Sr. Concetta, Sr. Kiersten is Sr. Elassara, Sr. Avigail is Sr. Rosaria, Sr. Gwyneth is Sr. Pauline, and our two Sr. Natalie’s are now Sr. Alma and Sr. Thomeissa. Tremendous thanks to His Excellency Bishop Robert Finn and to the clerics and lay friends who made the day so memorable and grace-filled!
