We Welcome Three New Sisters Upon Making First Monastic Profession

(Lt. to Rt.) Sister Nicole Kunze, prioress, with Sister Krista Ferrell, Sister Marena Hoogland, Sister Agatha Muggli (novice director), Sister Mary Ruth Kayute, and Sister Nancy Miller (director of sisters in first monastic profession).


On this glorious autumn day, we praise and thank God for our three new sisters - Sister Krista Ferrell, Sister Marena Hoogland, and Sister Mary Ruth Kayute.

Surrounded by the monastic community, friends and family members, these sisters read and signed their first monastic profession document and received blessed pins from Sister Nicole Kunze, prioress. The pins are a sign of their commitment to the monastic community - the Benedictine Sisters of Annunciation Monastery.

May God bless these sisters, and all who are responding to God's call to religious life.
