Sister Annie and Sister Mary Therese are New Novices at Mississippi Abbey

On Monday, August 15th, the feast of the Assumption of Mary into Heaven, our two novices at Our Lady of the Mississippi Abbey, Sr. Annie Rose Marie and Sr. Mary Therese, received the Cistercian habit after Chapter. The event brought great joy to all in the community. The two novices served as gift bearers at Mass. At dinner we had a special celebratory meal.
