More good news!

Before the "Year of Consecrated Life" is completed, four fifths of our monastery will take the next step in consecrating our lives to God! As you read in our last post, Jacqui and Moki will be tonsured as rasophore ("robe-bearer") nuns on September 7. And today, on this great Feast of the Dormition, we are overjoyed to share with you that Sr. Cecilia and Sr. Gabriella will make their life profession and be tonsured as stavrophore ("cross-bearer") nuns on Sunday, November 8!

As Mary, the Mother of God, surrendered herself to God at the Annunciation as well as at her Dormition, may Sr. Cecilia and Sr. Gabriella be filled with grace in order to give their total "yes" to God and to joyfully die to the world. Please pray for them, that they may place their lives without condition into the hands of God, so that His will may be accomplished in them, bringing forth life into the world.

At the Sisters' profession, they will receive additional pieces of the habit, as well as the title "Mother" to represent the spiritual motherhood that results from their union with Christ the Bridegroom.

All are welcome to attend the Profession and Divine Liturgy for the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel and all the Angels on Sunday, November 8, 2015, at 2:00 p.m. at the Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, 1900 Carlton Rd., Parma, Ohio.
