A New Postulant From St. Joseph!

This evening after supper we happily welcomed Sr. Carri Prewitt as a postulant to our community!

Sr. Carri is from Pittsburg, Kansas and drove all the way here in a 15 passenger van with her mom, Kathleen, 12 friends and Fr. David Marstall, campus minister of the University of Pittsburg where Carri was a student until recently. Yes, you read correctly! Somehow they were able to fit in Carri's things, their luggage and sleeping bags!

Please pray for Carri as she begins her journey to become a Nun of the Order of Preachers.

Sr. Carri, her mom, Fr. David and a few friends came a long for the ride!

Sr. Mary Daniel greets Carri in the community room after a short ceremony in the Choir.

What will be the first of many such veil pulls, Sr. Joseph Maria fixes Sr. Carri's veil much to her surprise...and obviously of Sr. Maria Teresa, too.

Please thank God with us for the gift of such beautiful young women to our monastery!
