Ceremony of Welcome

Sr. Jo-Anne was kind enough to send along some photos from the Ceremony of Welcome for me & Hellen that took place last Saturday at groovy sister hq. Thought I'd share!

blessing

As part of the ceremony, the province leadership team gave us each a peace candle (which has our name and the date inscribed on it) and an icon of St Joseph of Peace. Everyone then raised their hands and offered a blessing on our continuing journeys.

It was a beautiful day and a special moment.

susan, i have had this link "saved" because i wanted to type something profoundly moving because i find the pictures to be so - the joy on your face, though, just makes me smile.

again, i have to say it: i am so blessed to be on this journey with you.

peace.
