Sr. Harriet's Clothing

Sr. Mary Therese reading the Rule

Sr. Harriet became a novice yesterday as she received the Cistercian habit on the first Sunday of Lent.
She received the habit from M. Rebecca in the Chapter Room.  The community looked on along with seven young women who participated in our Vocation discernment weekend.

The novice also receives the Rule of St. Benedict which we follow along with a cross made from wood from our property.

 At dinner we had a celebratory meal to mark this most important step for Harriet in monastic life.
