Recommended Posts

This news is two months old, but I just discovered it: 

Olivetan Benedictine Sisters of Holy Angels Convent (ARK).

September 5 · 

New Candidate Welcomed...

On Sunday, September 3, 2017, the Sisters welcomed candidate Julie Watts of Columbia, Missouri, to Holy Angels Convent. In a ceremony before Evening Prayer, Julie knocked on the door of the Chapel and was greeted by the Prioress and Formation Directress. After receiving permission to try her vocation in the community, Julie was escorted to her new place with the Sisters in Chapel. Please keep Julie in your prayers!

From the Congregation of Alexian Brothers:

[... on July 17] Brother Jeffrey and Brother Torch professed their First Vows. Brother Dan McCormick, C.F.A., Provincial of the Immaculate Conception Province, spoke before the end of the Mass, describing Brother Jeffrey and Brother Torch as men who want to follow Jesus Christ by living and praying in community and by caring for the most vulnerable and unwanted in society.

Brother Jeffrey and Brother Torch joined the Alexian Brothers as postulants in January 2015 and entered the novitiate in St. Louis in July 2015.

From Saint Louis Abbey (Benedictine monks of the English congregation):

"Saint Louis Abbey shared Saint Louis Priory School's post.

Please pray for Brother Basil Sienkiewicz, O.S.B., who professed his Simple Vows today [12-02-17].

Deo Gratias!"

Founded in 1955, this abbey now has 34 monks, I believe, ranging in age from about 93 down to twenty-somethings. On average, one man per year has been entering for the last 20 years or so. It's quite encouraging.

From the Dominican nuns at Queen of Peace monastery in Squamish, British Columbia, Canada: 

We had the great joy this September of welcoming two new postulants. Marguerite is from Ottawa, Ontario, and has a background in visual arts, while Jessica is from Surrey, British Columbia, and trained in molecular biology and biochemistry. We ask you to hold them and all our candidates and novitiate sisters in your prayers as they lace their (hiking) boots and set out to follow our Lord in Dominican monastic life—for His joy and the salvation of souls!

... on October 7, the feast of Our Lady of the Rosary, ... Sister Marie Thomas of the Divine Word received the holy habit of St. Dominic. Born in Prince Rupert in northern British Columbia, and raised in Whistler, Sister is so grateful to be able to answer God’s call in her “home and native land” of Canada. Please pray for her perseverance and joy in the Lord!

On October 18th, the Feast of St. Luke the Evangelist, Sr. Elizabeth Marie of the Transfiguration made her Simple Profession of vows in the hands of Sr. Marie Tersidis, our prioress, and received the black veil of a professed nun. Originally from the Pacific Northwest, Sr. Elizabeth Marie first encountered the Dominican Order in college and later spent time with Dominican Volunteers USA before being drawn to serve God and the world in the “holy preaching” of contemplative life. You can enjoy more photos of the profession on our website.

2 Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary professed vows on December 8. Nice pics. 
 

 

 

Passionist nuns had the last of their novices profess vows on December 8.

I don't think there are any postulants there, right now, so it's all black veils, now.

A friend of mine made her entrance into a monastic community on Dec 8th. I won't say where, and I doubt there is online info on it, but if you're counting you can add one :)

Please join us in congratulating Elizabeth, who entered our postulancy today! Also, please keep her in your prayers as she continues her discernment journey. And thank you for your prayers for vocations. The Lord is listening!

I probably shouldn't leave out myself...lol. It's not an entrance! Just a week-long visit, but it's the first one, and it's been a long road to get to this point. It's in two and a half weeks from now. I am open to it not being my vocation, but I'm also entirely open to being snared like a fly. Please pray for me!

Totally Franciscan

I am really confused.  I was of the understanding that Cheyenne and Phoenix both discerned out perhaps over a year ago.  Did they return?  It is hard to keep up with the Barhamsville Poor Clares, as their blog has not been updated since June, 2017.  Can anyone set me straight?  I would be most grateful.
