Thank you for your patience in waiting for our community’s official announcement of our new novice.  It wasn’t easy for us to wait either!  But wait no longer!  Here are a few pics and the vocation story of Sister Mary Francis of the Holy Cross.

Congratulations to our newest novice!

And to all of you who responded with your wonderful guesses as to her new religious name, we have even more good news!  We’ve decided that everyone who responded to our contest should receive a knotted cord rosary.  And to our one official winner, Melody Clarke, we will also send a copy of the Rosary Prayerbook, written by sisters of our monastery and updated and republished for the 800th Jubilee Year of the Order of Preachers!  Congratulations Melody!  So we know where to send the rosaries and book, please contact either by PM or email with your mailing address.

And thank you again to all of you who waited so patiently for our community’s official announcement and now share our joy!
