One of the reasons I love our summers in community is because it is often during the summer that we celebrate jubilees, first professions and perpetual professions. I had the privilege on Saturday of witnessing the perpetual profession of our Sister Maria Christina and Sister Mary Judine in Covington, KY. It was a great joy to be part of this celebration since I have come to know these Sisters through our national formation gatherings.
Each time I take part in one of these ceremonies of commitment, I am renewed in my own gift of vocation. Our life in Notre Dame is a tremendous gift, and I am blessed to be called to give my whole life to God and God’s people along with this amazing group of women. I rejoice that our spirit continues in our newer members.
Congratulations, Sisters Maria Christina and Mary Judine! May you know the joy of a life given in love!
