Solemn Profession Sr Mary Thomas
We were delighted to be invited to attend the Solemn Monastic Profession of Sr Mary Thomas at St Cecilia’s Abbey Ryde. Although our own abbot invariably attends the greater festivals in the life of the Ryde community he was unable to be present at this one as he was carrying out a Canonical Visitation at the monastery of Thien Tam in Texas, which belongs to our province and congregation.
The profession offered the usual Ryde fare of magnificent chant and a festal recreation. A good time was had by all, and Sr Mary Thomas looks very much the part in her new cowl.
