As Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist, we long to bear our Spouse, Jesus Christ, in the world through our witness of love and preaching of truth. We fulfill this desire by the gift of our whole selves through making the Profession of our Vows.
On Wednesday, July 24, seven Sisters will be prostrating themselves before the altar and making their Profession of Perpetual Vows, giving themselves to Christ “for all my life.” Only two days later, on Friday, July 26, two more Sisters will profess their Temporary Vows to the Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist. In preparation for these upcoming celebrations, we invite you to join us in prayer for our beloved Sisters who are laying their lives down in service to Christ and His Church:
Heavenly Father, in Your wisdom, You have called these women to a life
of special consecration so that in prayerful observance of a life of poverty,
chaste celibacy, and obedience, they might be witnesses to us as St. Paul says:
“Our true citizenship is in Heaven.” Give them, Lord, the grace of
joy and perseverance in their holy vocation.
We ask this through Christ, our Lord. Amen.
