Another Passionist Bride of Christ
Hello folks from around the world! As many of you know, Sr. Lucia Marie of the Mystical Body of Christ, made her First Profession of vows Thursday, January 5. It was a glorious day with a touch of snow adding to the mystic. Although, unfortunately, some had to cancel their attendance because the forecast was dire in some places. But a small remnant, a number of whom were from Florida, were very graced by the day, and absolutely delighted with the snow!
Our dear friend, Fr. Andy Garner (Very Reverend D. Andrew Canon Garner to be exact!) was the Presider, joined by our chaplain, Fr. Lou Caporiccio, C.P.M. and our friend, Fr. Julio Barrera. Fr. Lou gave a wonderful homily which I have already posted for you. We were blessed by seminarian, Corey Bruns, as master of ceremonies, and our faithful server, Dwayne Roby was also present.
Long-time friends Mel Howard and Larena Lawson, were videographer and photographer - Grazie mille!
