More from the Agrégées Vow Ceremony in Concordia

Sisters Lorren Harbin and Kathy Schaeffer wearing their profession crosses after making their life commitment

Yesterday, after a two to three year preparation process, in the context of a eucharistic liturgy Lorren and Kathy accepted both their rights and responsibilities of membership in the Sisters of St Joseph of Concordia according to the Constitutions for Agrégées.
Marcia Allen blessed the rings and profession crosses presented to Lorren and Kathy

The vow that they took was one of fidelity, which is a private, non-canonical vow for a lifetime and implies the same seriousness of life that canonical vows imply. 

At the end of the ceremony, Sr. Marcia invited all of the sisters to circle around Kathy and Lorren to confirm that they"are one with us as members of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Concordia."
In the chapel, the Sisters confirm their relationship Lorren and Kathy
