Three Women Profess Perpetual Vows as Religious Sisters of Mercy of Alma

rsm vowsSAGINAW— Three women professed their Perpetual Vows as Religious Sisters of Mercy of Alma on Tuesday, Aug. 16, during Mass at the Cathedral of Mary of the Assumption in Saginaw. In the Rite of Religious Profession, Sister Mariana Koonce, Sister Rose Marie Timmer and Sister Mary Thoma Houseal publicly requested to make their perpetual profession, were examined by Superior General Mother Mary McGreevy and prostrated themselves before the altar during the Litany of the Saints. Following the Litany, each Sister knelt before Mother Mary McGreevy to profess her Vows; after the Superior General accepted them, she and the Sister approached the altar to sign the vow formula.

Their Act of Religious Profession includes perpetual vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, and the service of the poor, sick and ignorant, and to persevere faithfully until death in the Institute of the Religious Sisters of Mercy of Alma.

The Most Rev. Joseph R. Cistone, Bishop of Saginaw, then prayed the Solemn Prayer of Consecration over the newly-professed Sisters. Afterward, each of the newly professed sisters knelt before the Superior General as she placed a ring, signifying their Religious Profession, on their left ring finger.
