From The “Bar” To The “Grille”!

Exciting news!

You may have already guessed from the most recent pictures we’ve shared, but here is the long-awaited formal announcement.

On November 1st, the Solemnity of All Saints, Sister Tara entered the cloister as our newest Postulant!

Originally from Anchorage, Alaska, Sr. Tara obtained her law degree before entering into full communion with the Catholic Church. She completed her aspirancy in 2010, but was prevented from entering until her student loans were resolved.

We are so grateful for The Labouré Society, friends and benefactors, who helped resolve this hurdle so we could welcome Sr. Tara into our community at long last!

Here’s a beautiful reflection written by our Dominican friar, Fr. Isaiah Mary Molano, O.P. of Sister Tara’s entrance: http://blog.stdominics.org/2014/11/12/a-preachers-life-entrance-day/. The pictures below supplement his eloquent writing.

 We rejoice and give thanks to God for his mercy because...there is one more nun in the middle of Silicon Valley and in the heart of the Church praying for our world!

Please join us in praying for many more vocations.
