Eight Women Entered Into Sisters' Novitiate

Here are the pictures from the entrance into novitiate that happened yesterday, July 12th.  These women after a period of aspirancy and postulancy will receive the name of Mary and a veil for the next two years of novitiate.  One year will be an apostolic novitiate year and the other will be a canonical year in which they learn the spirituality and patrimony of SOLT.  Included are some pictures from different events.

Receiving the habit from a family member is a sign of
the support and care she received from her family
in order to answer the call of religious life.
The new novices present themselves to Our Lady to ask
her for help during the time of their formation
Some of these Sisters will make their 1st profession tomorrow

Afterward was a reception.  Each meal is served by a
different group of priests, religious, and laity.
All the events tired out Fr John McHugh
