Sister Marie Elise Solemn Profession Pictures

Here are some pictures from yesterday's Solemn Profession ceremony:

the litany of the Saints.
This symbolized her death to her former life and her rising to a new life in Christ.

Dear Sisters, I'm very happy for you. Even if I'm french, I regurlarly visit your blog, as well as those of PCPA of Tonopah, Dominican Nuns of Summit, and Passionist Nuns of Whitesville. But I have a question: Sister Elise has already professed solemn vows while she was invested in the Holy Habit in 2011? The integration process takes 6 years for the Dominican nuns and 9 years for the Passionist Nuns.
Many blessings from France

When Sister Elise came to us, she was a finally professed sister from an active congregation. So, she was technically a "transfer sister". The formation process is different and shorter in this case from a woman coming straight from secular life.
