The ceremony took place during Mass. It was graced by the presence of my Sisters, family of origin and friends. The music added such beauty to the ceremony, with 2 Franciscan Sister friends singing and playing violin. Of course, our own Sister Susan played the organ beautifully as well.
I am blessed to have found the community and place I belong. My Aunt told me she thinks I am “lucky” because I am able to “live out my dream.” Not everyone is able to do that! I had never thought of it that way … but I’ve always known how blessed I am here.
I believe I am still processing the day, and still celebrating, too. But however long it takes me, I know this: I will treasure all my profession memories. I will treasure my Sisters and friends and family. And I will treasure the opportunity to seek God forever with – and in – my Benedictine community.
