Perpetual Profession Sunday! Franciscan Sisters in North Dakota


What a blessed couple of days we’ve had!

On Sunday morning, we traveled to Hankinson, ND, for Sr. M. Ruth’s perpetual profession! It was wonderful to witness our Sister (my former classmate as she is three+ years behind me)’s special moment!

We spent the night there and had a semi-annual community meeting yesterday morning.

The funeral Mass for Sr. Genevieve (my former novice mistress) was today. Having work duties back at St. Anne’s, we came back here in the meantime and returned to Hankinson this morning.

Please join me in congratulating Sr. Mary Ruth on this wonderful occasion!


Congratulations Sr. Mary Ruth. May God bless you. Praying for the repose of Sr. Genevieve’s soul & for her family.


Thanks - and thanks for the prayers!


Congrats! May you be abundantly blessed!
