POSTULANT MARY BECOMES NOVICE MARY CATHRYNE

Our Mary Vanek, a postulant at St. Placid Priory for the past year, on June 8 became Novice Mary Cathryne at an Evening Praise ritual. We joyfully welcome Novice Mary Cathryne more deeply into Community!

After the ceremony, the community celebrated with Novice Mary Cathryne in our community room–enjoying some “Texas fun”: cowboy hats and boots, a big “boot” piñata, balloons, and a special version of “The Yellow Rose of Texas” performed by a small group.
