Congratulations to Sister Marie Therese, who made her First Profession of Vows as a Sister of Our Lady Immaculate on August 15th, Solemnity of the Assumption of Our Lady into heaven! The SOLI community sends a special thank you to Bishop Matthew Ustryzcki and Father Wayne Lobsinger for their presence at the Profession Mass and ceremony and to Father John Henry Hanson, O. Praem. of St Michael’s Abbey, California, for directing this year’s annual retreat leading up to the day of celebration. May God be praised for all His blessings our community has received during this year! Thank you to all who have supported Sister Marie Therese by their prayers and kindnesses during her time of initial formation. Please continue to pray for her and the SOLI community and for more young women to answer the beautiful invitation to consecrate their lives completely to Christ as His Spouses.
