Congratulations to the Newly Professed and Community

A religious profession is a good and beautiful thing. We here at Saint Benedict Center, Richmond, congratulate the Brothers and Sisters at Saint Benedict Center in Still River, Massachusetts, on the recent profession of Sister Mary Imelda:

On September 8th, 2014, Sister Mary Imelda, novice, the former Mary-Kate Duffy of Shirley Massachusetts, made her first vows to Our Lord, Jesus Christ, as His bride. The touching ceremony began when she walked down the aisle in her bridal gown along side her father, followed by her flower girls, her two younger twin sisters.

A sung Mass was celebrated by Father Neil Roy and assisted by many altar servers, including Sister Mary Imelda’s brother. At the Offertory, Sister profoundly bowed then publicly renounced the world and professed her vows, signing them on the altar. She was then blessed and given the habit and black veil of the professed members of the order, and walked out of the chapel as the choir of Brothers and Sisters chanted traditional hymns.
