Sr Regina Walker made her first (private) vows on Saturday, October 31st, at the Vigil Mass of All Saints in the church of the Immaculate Conception in Forest City before its pastor, the Right Reverend Herbert Burke, V.F. She promised to live Stability, Conversion of Life and Obedience according to the Rule of St. Benedict and the monastic life as it is lived at our monastery. Sr Regina spoke at her reception which followed the ceremony, telling her family and guests of her long desire to give herself totally to Christ and her strong sense of having joyfully found where God wants her to live out this gift of herself. We thank God for the gift of Sr Regina.
