Sister Josephine - Baltic, Connecticut

Our destination on this trip was Baltic Connecticut.  I blogged a bit about the area on another trip back in 2010 here.  This time, we were coming to see our good friend, Elizabeth, take her final vows to become a Sister of Charity.

Elizabeth would become Sister Josephine and the convent was prepared to celebrate.

This was only a class of two but drew a good sized group of friends and family.  In Elizabeth's case, she had to settle for friends since the U.S. Government wouldn't grant a travel visa to her sister in Burundi.  I am sure most Americans have no idea how their freedom to visit foreign lands compares to that of people in much of the rest of the world.

Decorations and a program for the Catholic Mass surrounding the vows were prepared.

By noon on Saturday, Sister Helena and Sister Josephine had their rings and the Order had two new sisters.
