Making profession

the Inland Register

(From the December 20, 2012 edition of the Inland Register)

On Nov. 9 at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Lourdes, six women became the first to make perpetual profession, and three others made temporary profession, as Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Church, a public association of the faithful. Bishop Blase Cupich celebrated the Mass, which was concelebrated by diocesan and Religious priests from Eastern Washington and Idaho. Each of the perpetually professed Sisters received a ring, a silver wedding band crowned with the Holy Spirit in the form of a dove, modeled from the alabaster window at St. Peter Basilica and also pictured on the associationís crest. In the picture above left, from left: Mother Kathryn Joseph Duddy, and Sisters Mary Elizabeth Earp, Maria Consuela Berube, Mary Eucharista Mazurik, Marybeth Pederson, and Marie Francine Pederson made perpetual profession. At right, above, the Sisters making temporary profession: from left are Sisters Mary Joanna Ranalli, Margarite Marie Stringer, and Paschalina Marie Peters.
