Joy as Redemptoristine nun makes solemn profession in Dublin

The Redemptoristine nuns in Drumcondra in Dublin are going from strength to strength. On Saturday last, the community celebrated the solemn (perpetual) profession of one of their sisters - Sr Monica Boggan OsSR. Originally ftom County Meath, Sr Monica has completed three years of simple profession as a Redemptoristine nun. The nuns are well known for their work of providing altar breads for the churches and parishes of the Dublin region and beyond. While this is a 'work' of the community, the primary purpose of the nuns is to devote themselves to the Lord through prayer and monastic observance.

Readers of this blog will know of the high esteem in which I hold these sisters - and I continue to ask other congregations of religious contemplatives to keep an eye on the vocations strategy emplyed by this vibrant community. It is worth copying.

Sr Monica's solemn profession is the third perpetual profession for the Redemptoristines in the past few years. May Sr Monica and her community continue to flourish.
