Exultation of the Holy Cross

 The Feast of the Exultation of the Holy Cross is our Profession Day.

Our Foundress, Rose Hawthorne (Mother Mary Alphonsa), saw us as servants at the foot of the Cross, serving Christ in the poor suffering from incurable cancer.

This year, our celebration included the Clothing Ceremony of our Postulants and the renewal of vows of two of our junior professed sisters.  God is good to us and we have many reasons for rejoicing!
