Ascension Thursday and Sacred Promises
On Thursday, the Solemnity of the Ascension of the Lord, we had the special joy of witnessing our Sister Maria Christi take her next step in formation. Sister is a finally professed Sister from an apostolic congregation who has discerned a contemplative vocation with us for the past few years. Here she makes her Sacred Promises to observe her vows according to our Poor Clare Rule and also makes a Vow of Enclosure.
