Temporary Vow Week
As it happens twice every year, our temporary vow Sisters with their Director, Sr. Anthony De Lourdes Veilleux, gathered at the Motherhouse on the week of August 16, 2015 for conferences and fraternity. Fr. Ashley Harrington, O.Carm., approached the theme of "Religion and Spirituality" in his talks to our Sisters. He explained that religion is an ordered way of life based on mutual experiences and convictions in an attempt to contact a power or energy which helps the organized group to transform life. Spirituality, on the other hand, is connecting with a higher power to transform oneself. These two concepts were examined through the lenses of the Old and New Testaments.
As the Sisters spent time with each other, we'd like to acknowledge Sr. Katherine Theresa's (L-R: 3rd on front row) last time to attend temporary vow week as she prepares for her Profession of Final Vows on November 21, 2015. Congratulations Sr. Katherine Theresa and may God continue to be your joy!
