On October 16, 2015 our Novice, Sister Anna Thannical began her new entry into the vowed life of a Sister of the Visitation of Holy Mary. Three o'clock in the afternoon marked a special Hour, the Hour of Mercy and the significance of this hour occuring on a Friday made the memory of this vow ceremony very special for Sister. How fitting to honor the Sacred Heart of Jesus and Saint Margaret Mary by professing to give one's life entirely to Jesus.
Sister's parents were not able to attend this special day, however, our Marian Fathers offered Sister the gift of video taping the entire Mass so that her parents would be able to participate in this way even in far off India.
Sister had the joy of having her brothers, sister and many nieces and a nephew present for this special day. The benefits of technology and "FaceTime" allowed Sister to speak with both her mother and father earlier in the day and receive their blessing as Sister takes another step in her desire to be a Sister of the Visitation.

Sister was joined by many friends and religious of other communities for this joyous occasion. A reception followed the ceremonies. Sister wishes to THANK all who joined her on her special day.
God be praised!
