While the ceremony itself had its setbacks (i.e.- no A.C. in 108 degree weather and my height challenge made it hard to see), it was a privilege to have the rare opportunity to see such a beautiful event.
Two Sisters took their first vows and received the black habit while three Sisters renewed their temporary vows.
After receiving the black veil, the Sisters also received a crown of roses.
Afterward, the "freshly vowed" Sisters wore their crown of roses at a small party in the (air conditioned!) basement where some of the more musical Sisters led us in a sing-a-long.

What a blessing to spend the day with Brides of Christ!
