Why Is This Novice Smiling?
Sr. Bernadette Marie is all smiles these days...because in less than a month, on February 2, 2013, she will make her first profession of vows! This is a big milestone in the life of a Dominican nun. In addition to professing her temporary (for three years) vow of obedience, she will also receive the black veil--a dramatic change in a novice's appearance. We will be bringing you these new pictures as soon as possible after the big day!
And we also want to show you a couple of pictures from our New Year's drawing of patrons...
Everyone had a wonderful time drawing their patrons, which were printed on lovely holy cards designed by one of our own sisters. We look forward to a blessed and holy New Year 2013--and wish all happiness and blessing for you as well!
