Dominican Nuns in Marbury, Alabama celebrate Solemn Profession
August 18, 2012
Today, August 18, 2012, the Feast of Blessed Mannes (brother of St. Dominic), Sr. Mary Jordan OP of the Holy Family made her Solemn Profession at the Monastery of St. Jude in Marbury, Alabama in the presence of his Excellency, Thomas J. Rodi, Archbishop of Mobile and Archbishop Oscar Lipscomb, Archbishop Emeritus of Mobile, Dominican friars & sisters, diocesan priests, friends, family and her Dominican community.
Sr. Mary Jordan OP was in our high school youth ministry program at our parish at St. Gertrude in Cincinnati when I was a newly ordained priest (many years ago). It was a beautiful event to see this spouse of Christ give her life “usque ad mortem” for the sake of the Gospel. It was a very moving ceremony.Congratulations Sr. Mary Jordan OP! Pray for vocations to our Dominican Nuns!
