Thanks to our dear friend Gina Marie -- who graciously photographed the Sisters' First Profession of Vows, we have wonderful pictures of the ceremony to share.
May the heart of Jesus, in the Most Blessed Sacrament, be praised, adored, and loved with grateful affection, at every moment, in all the tabernacles of the world, even to the end of time. Amen.

"O Redeemer, hear this anthem, as we sing with one accord.
