Clothing of Marissa, April 30, 2021

Sister Hilda, our Prioress Hilda asks Marissa, “What is your request?”  Marissa answers, “The mercy of God and the sharing in your monastic life.”  Sister Hilda presents the Rule of St. Benedict, and asks God to bring to completion what He has begun in Marissa.  The Scapular and the Veil are blessed by Fr. Philip Lawrence, OSB, Abbot Emeritus, Monastery of Christ in the Desert.  Marissa receives the name of Sister Scholastica and will be a Novice for two years.
