61st Anniversary of Solemn Profession

Although only a Memorial for the rest of the Church, our monastery celebrates today's feast of Our Lady's Presentation with the rank of a Feast. Why? Because it is our community's anniversary of Solemn Profession! On November 21, 1955 all of the sisters in perpetual vows made solemn vows as nuns of the Order of Preachers. We have a recording of our sisters making their vows which we listened to tonight at Supper.  Sr. Mary Daniel is the only sister left living who made Solemn Profession that day.

The Community in 1927, 28 years before making Solemn Profession.
