Sister Mary Anne came from Singapore to Still River almost three years ago and entered as a Postulant. While attending the Traditional Mass in her native country, she met a family from Chicago who were parishioners of the same church. One day she mentioned to them that she was discerning a vocation to the religious life and they directed her to the Slaves of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. She soon visited and then decided to join. Having spent the two required years in the Novitiate, Sister Mary Anne made her First Profession as a Spouse of Christ on the glorious feast of Our Lady of Fatima, vowing Poverty, Chastity, and Obedience to Jesus through Mary.
We are happy to share the moving ceremony of First Profession in a short video below and a gallery of photos from this important day. Please pray for Sister Mary Anne, MICM, the new Bride of Christ.
