Nun News Mini-Roundup, Summer 2014

I do a full roundup of Nun News every autumn, usually around the Feast day of Saint Therese of Lisieux, and I am beginning to collect for that post now, but these pics are so neat, I thought I’d share them:

The Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Church
have a new novice, and she is very cool:

The Passionist Nuns of the Diocese of Owensboro added a second postulant to their young noviate this week.

New novice BethlehemThe Poor Clares of Bethlehem Monastery has clothed yet another novice and celebrated another nun’s solemn vows just days ago. I believe they have two postulants, or three. Very busy!

The Sisters of Life have eight new novices.

The Franciscan Sisters of the Renewal had four sisters profess final vows

The Little Sisters of the Poor
have three first professions.

The Dominican Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Eucharist received eight sisters for final profession this week: dsmme final vows

Their six new novices received the habit yesterday, and I believe a sizeable group are making their first vows this morning.

Pray for vocations to the priesthood and religious life (I am sure some of my Benedictine brothers and Dominican and Franciscan friends will be giving me headsup from their sides, too!). I’ll have tons more news — tons more — in the autumn!

    Just wonderful and lovely. Keep the updates coming. The Imagine Sisters Movement, about which Marc Barnes has written before, has just launched an Indiegogo fundraiser (about 34 days in length) to raise funds for new media projects. The Imagine Sisters Movement uses high-quality media to reveal the beauty of the Consecrated Life to the Church and to the world. If you’ve never seen their film Light of Love, google it and watch. It’s beautiful. Help them meet their fundraising goal by going here:–2

    Among the Sisters of Life, Sr. Magnificat. Magnificent name!
    That order sponsors Days of Healing, not only for women, but for men. What insight that they know such a thing is needed.
