This week, we welcomed back one of our aspirants, Tara Clemens, for a short visit. Tara completed her aspirancy (month-long stay inside the cloister) and was accepted to enter postulancy in 2010, pending resolution of her educational loans. Currently, she is working full-time and is an aspirant with The Labouré Society, a nonprofit organization that fosters vocations to the priesthood and religious life. The Laburé Society has helped over 230 young men and women enter formation through the resolution of their educational loans. We had a wonderful time catching up, hearing stories about life in Alaska, and sharing what has been happening here in the cloister.

Tara will be returning in October for another short visit. During that visit, she will also be meeting with local Serra Club members and others in the community to share her vocation story and invite others to support vocations like hers through prayers and financial support of Labouré Society. If you want to know more about Tara and her vocation journey, she keeps a blog, “Truth inLove”. You can also learn more about The LabouréSociety and their current aspirant class by clicking this link.
Please pray for Tara and all our aspirants, and for those that God is calling to Dominican cloistered life, that God would grant them the grace to persevere in their vocations.
