Sister Karin's First Monastic Profession
Sister Karin Kracht made her First Monastic Profession at a Eucharistic Liturgy on January 10, 2009 in the presence of the community and her family. After the homily, Sr. Rosemary presented Sr. Karin to the Prioress, Sr. Sharon McHugh who questioned her readiness and desire to profess vows for three years. Upon acceptance, Sr. Karin vowed stability, obedience and fidelity to the monastic way of life. She then signed her profession document upon the Gospel book on the altar. Afterwards, Sr. Sharon presented Sr. Karin with a candle which will burn again at her Final Monastic Profession. Following Mass, Sr. Karin's family joined her and the community in a festive meal.
