This image celebrating John’s birth was found on the Theology of the Body Institute webpage.


In the early decades of our monastery, sisters professed their temporary profession, also known as first vows, on June 24th. The Solemnity of the Nativity of John the Baptist honors not only John’s “unique role as the precursor of Jesus. The solemnity held on that date praises John as a worthy example of what it means to be a follower of Christ” (Our Sunday Visitor).

R. Alleluia, alleluia.
You, child, will be called prophet of the Most High,
for you will go before the Lord to prepare his way.
R. Alleluia, alleluia.

Until 1951 our sisters began their new life as the Church celebrated John’s birth.  They too were promising a new life and unique role as a follower of Christ, to follow John’s example of announcing Christ’s message and living as Christ’s presence in the world.  Please pray for our sisters who continue to celebrate their John the Baptist profession date:

Sister Wilma
Sister Jane Francis
Sister Kevin
Sister Madonna
