Exaltation of the Holy Cross

Perpetual vows profession – Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross

During the months of August and September, our Institute was blessed to have 9 sisters profess perpetual vows.   InThe religious life, through which we surrender ourselves totally to the service of God, wherein perfection lies, consists principally in the fulfilling of three vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, driven by charity (Const. 48)”.

The sisters made their vows in the following countries: Mexico, Ecuador, Italy, and the United States.

Sr. Maria Porta Paradisi professed perpetual vows on August 21, 2021 in the parish “Our Lady of Peace” in Mexico.
