SOLI Joy on Our Lady’s Feasts!

The SOLI Community has three reasons to celebrate this September! On the eighth, the beautiful Feast of the Nativity of Our Lady, Shelby Glofcheski of Barry’s Bay, Ontario was received by the community as a Novice and begins her first of two years in the novitiate program. During the ceremony Sister received the book of the Gospels and her new religious name. Congratulations Sister Maria Immaculata!

Also on this Feast of Our Lady, we welcomed Miss Carmen Herrera of Surrey, British Columbia to the SOLI community as our newest candidate! Please do keep Carmen and the other young women discerning with our community in your prayers. Congratulations Carmen!

On the Feast of Our Lady of Sorrows, September 15th, the SOLI Community joyfully welcomed Sister Tina Louise Uhrich of Winnipeg, who is beginning the process of transferring from her former community to the Sisters of Our Lady Immaculate. A special thank you is extended to Father Paul Nicholson of the London Diocese for offering the Mass and for introducing Sister Tina Louise to our community. Mass was offered in the Extraordinary Form for Sister’s entrance. May Our Lady continue to bless and guide each of our sisters in their desire to serve and love the Lord.
