Blessed be God!

Congratulations and many prayers for you and New Additions #1 & #2! :saint:

I will be sure to keep your special intention in my prayers as well. :pray: Were you able to apply for the [url="http://www.fundforvocations.org"]Mater Ecclesiae[/url] grant last month? That's pretty much the only organization I know about (besides the Laboure foundation) dedicated specifically to helping future (God willing) religious enter their communities by alleviating their debt.

Congratulations to all!

It's been a long time since we had an update about these nuns--did the novice Sister Agnes make her first vows--her clothing ceremony was documented a few years ago by a local television station--just wondering...

Please remember to pray for these nuns, as they are doing much good, and have certain enemies who do not want to see them grow (remember the trials of St. Teresa of Avila each time she founded a new foundation, it was at great costs, often ground between the teeth of great oppression and diabolical attacks).

I am curious, too. Has Sr. Agnes made her first vows?

I appreciate everyone's curiosity, however since I'm not a spokesperson for the community I don't feel it would be appropriate for me to speak about community affairs.

Oooh! Congratulations! Does this mean you get a solid black veil, or the kind of see through one? By the way,I just checked their website, did they change their postulant habit? It looks different! But cool!

You're not being mean, simply pointing out the inconsistency. No one is asking about Sr. Agnes for any reason other than to keep her in their prayers, no matter what the answer.

Sr. Agnes was a PM'er before entering the Dominicans. She was known as Chorusgirl. If she is still in Lockport, it would be nice to include her in the new vocations thread.

I have never posted anything about internal community affairs, and will never, because things that happen in community, good and bad, are easily misintepreted by outsiders. And since one never knows what will be misintepreted or cause scandal,etc, I find its best not to speak of things that aren't anyone's business but those in the community. :)

[b]ASPIRANT[/b] are uniformly dressed in full black jumpers with whitelong-sleeve under blouses and what were referred to as “seethrough” veils.

[b]POSTULANTS[/b] are also uniformly dressed in full black jumpers with whitelong-sleeve under blouses and also - short black “solid” veilsand capes; crucifixes; and belted rosaries.

IIMHO they have the[b] best[/b] outfits!! :love:

Veils for both postulants and aspirants is so wonderful!!!

Plus, capes!!! -- and crucifixes and belted rosaries for the postulants!!! :woot:

Can I just say it again? -- CAPES!!! :love: Ahhhh!

I know I shouldn't be so superficial about this, but really.. I love capes. As silly as it sounds, I just felt so much more "nunly" wearing it. I remember one Christmas while in the convent my mom bought me a fleece cape-like poncho -- I wore it as much as possible. :smokey: Even now, I like to wear it with a skirt when it's cold out. Ah... love it.

Okay...I'm done. Sorry to hijack with my superficiality. :blush:

I don't think its superficial at all! I think one of the things that first drew me to the community was their beautiful "outfits". When people ask me why I want to be a nun I'm always [b]so[/b] [i]tempted[/i] to tell them its because I'll get to wear a cape!:yes: I love capes too!:love:
