Daughter of Our Lady of the Atonement Parish takes vows with Poor Clares

Not new news, but, good news.

On Saturday, July 7th, Fr. Phillips celebrated the Mass and officiated at the Mass of Solemn Profession for Sr. Elizabeth Marie, a daughter of this parish.

Shown here with the pastor and Sister's mother, Peggy Graham, Sr. Elizabeth Marie is a Nun of the Poor Clares of Perpetual Adoration at Our Lady of the Angels Monastery in Hanceville, Alabama.

A great thanks is due to Fr. Phillips for the good work done at his parish is now paying dividends for the whole Church, as we now have another cloistered nun interceding for our sinful world.

A little more good news... it's not official yet, because the necessary documents have not yet arrived from Rome, but five of the Poor Clare nuns from Hanceville have permission from the Chapter to found a new monastery here at the Parish of Our Lady of the Atonement. What a blessing it will be to have consecrated women in our midst, praying before the Blessed Sacrament for the needs of the world!
