On January 27, 2018, we had the great joy of witnessing the First Profession of Sister Mary Therese of the Divine Mercy. The occasion was extra special because all of her immediate family were able to attend and stay the weekend.

The celebration extended over a period of several days for Sister and the Community:
- Saturday – the actual day with guests
- Sunday – the Community visits with Sister\’s family
- Monday – Sisters in the Novitiate open her gifts from the Community
- Tuesday – the Professed Nuns go to the Novitiate to see her gifts
Besides all this, Sister had the canonical 8-day retreat before her Profession as required by our Constitutions and Canon Law.
