First Profession of Sr. Lucia- May 13, 2019

Sr. Lucia of the Immaculate Heart

First Profession on May 13, 2019

Feast of Our Lady of Fatima


During Lauds on Monday, May 13, Sr. Lucia of the Immaculate Heart made her First Profession of Vows in the presence of our Community of Mary, Mother of Grace.  Mother Regina opened the ceremony of Religious Profession addressing Sr. Lucia with these words:

Today at Fatima thousands, if not millions, are praising Our Lady with endless Aves, Rosaries, processions with lighted, flaming candles and Masses, wonderful homilies, etc.  But I wonder if there is any place on earth that is giving more joy to the Immaculate Heart as our Carmel where you are offering to God and the Immaculate Heart not only the praise of your lips but the living sacrifice of your life vowed to God and lived in union with the Immaculate Heart of Mary!

Through Religious Profession, Sr. Lucia offers herself to God through the vows of chastity, poverty and obedience as a Discalced Carmelite Nun.  Sr. Lucia will continue her initial formation as a junior professed for five years in the hopes of making her definitive commitment through Solemn Vows in the presence of the Church.
