Sister Anna-Camille Wooden made First Profession of her Monastic Promise on January 15, 2020, the Feast of St. Placid, in our chapel at Evening Praise. She read her promise document in the presence of God and the Benedictine Sisters of St. Placid Priory, and signed the document she had written in her own hand on the altar. All the Sisters supported her in singing the Suscipe; this was followed by the sign of peace.

After the ritual in chapel, we retired to the dining room for some fun and some wacky gifts. “Snowballs” and flamingos figured prominently
