SAGINAW— Three women professed their Perpetual Vows as Religious Sisters of Mercy of Alma, Michigan on Wednesday, Aug. 16, during Mass at the Cathedral of Mary of the Assumption in Saginaw.
For the three women, the profession of vows was the culmination of eight years of religious formation along with normal professional education. The young women who hold or are currently working toward advanced degrees, will use their education to help serve the needs of the Church in whatever capacity that they are asked.
The Most Rev. Joseph R. Cistone, Bishop of Saginaw, celebrated the Mass. The names of the women who professed are:
-Sister Mary Benedicta Maier, RSM
-Sister Maria Pacis Polakovic, RSM
-Sister Mary Lisa Renfer, RSM
