From the recent Solemn Profession at what is hopefully my future community! The newly professed sister is Sister Elizabeth, I believe the two novices are Sister Marie Therese and Sister Mary Thomas if I remember correctly.

And another picture from that community. If I am correct, I can't quite tell, that is Sister Mary David, the Novice Mistress.

I'm not sure I know what you mean by "conference" links.

The international equivalents of the Conference of Major Superiors of Women Religious; Institute on Religious Life; etc.

Emilyann, these pictures are lovely. Don't you think it's a thrill to see a 'full nun' who is so young? :)

Oh yes, it's one of the things I love about the community, they are incredibly blessed when it comes to vocations and have a lot of young women interested. They have those two novices at the moment who both look quite young and they have another three potential entrants next year, at least one of whom is just leaving university this year.

What monastery is this? I've never really thought about a contemplative vocation but am inpressed by the clear happiness evident on the sisters' faces.

St. Cecilia's Abbey in Ryde, England.

As Marigold has said, it is St Cecilia's Abbey. If you're interested in knowing more, [url="http://www.stceciliasabbey.org.uk/index.php"]this[/url] is their website. Their novice mistress is originally from the US so they're open to discerners from other countries.

Not that I'm aware of, but you're right they do look alike. I think it's the habit. :P

Oh I can't wait until it's me in that habit with them as my sisters.

how long is a live in? Doesn't your mom know you are discerning?
[/quote]

It's about 3-4 weeks.
I told her I was discerning and she had such a bad reaction and we had such an argument that I ended up just saying "forget it, I won't keep discerning". I regretted it immediately but I'm too scared to open the subject again.
