On Saturday, the feast of St. Augustine, whom we consider our "grandfather" because his Rule is the foundation of our Dominican life, we welcomed Sr. Veronique Eloizard to our monastery as a postulant.

Sr. Veronique, 40, is a native of Haiti but has lived in Trenton for many years. Recently, she worked for Vistitation Home, a Catholic shared living residence for people with developmental disabilities, as an Assistant. Not only does Sr. Veronique show a beautiful and compassionate nature but she also loves crunching numbers!

Sr, Veronique has a great love of our Lady and her Rosary, one of the many aspects of our life that attracted her to our community.

We are thrilled to have 2 postulants and yes, having similar names there will probably be some confusion! God willing, this "problem" will be remedied in a few short months when both Sr. Veronica and Sr. Veronique are clothed in the Dominican habit and take new names!

Please pray for our new Sister and for the young women who are planning to come for aspirancies in the coming months!

Special thanks to Sr. Judith Miryam for her beautiful photographs!
