November 17, 2018 â€“ Today, Bishop James Wall, Gallup Diocese, received the 1st vows of our Sister Stephen. Â It was a very joyous day and we thank all those who helped make this day a very blessed one. We especially thank our workers who diligently worked to finish the remodeling of our porch into a Chapel. We had about 100 guests.
In her Chart of Profession, Sister Stephen read, â€œâ€¦in response to Christ’s call and preferring nothing to his love, promise Stability, Conversion of Life and Obedience, according to the Rule of Our Holy Father Benedict and the Constitutions of the Abbey of the Presentation of the Lord in the Temple for three years. With my whole heart and relying on the grace of the Holy Spirit, the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the support of my community, I offer myself to God to seek the fullness of love in his service and that of the Church through the ministry of prayer and worship.â€
