Sr Sabine Schratz with her mother and father after making first profession as a Dominican sister
The Irish Dominican sisters of the Cabra congregation had reason to be joyful today (February 1st - the feast of Saint Bridget) as they celebrated the first profession of Sr Sabine Schratz. The rite of profession was celebrated during the celebration of the Eucharist at the Dominican convent chapel in Cabra, Dublin 7.
Sr Sabine has completed her novitiate and will now be assigned to one of the communities of the congregation in the very near future.
This first profession of Sr Sabine (the first for the congregation in many years) is a real sign of hope for the church in Ireland, but especially for the Dominicans. Irish Dominican Vocations wishes Sr Sabine every blessing as she continues her Dominican journey.
