On Saturday I drove a long way; to Stone in Staffordshire and back for the Solemn Religious Profession of Sister Ann Catherine Swailes as a Dominican sister. It was my privilege to have prepared and received Sister Ann into the Church some years ago, and so the Profession was a very special occasion for me.
Before the ceremony, with a picture of the foundress, the remarkable Mother Margaret Mary Hallahan:
and, a rather blurred after-picture.
Many congratulations to Sister Ann Catherine. Ad multos annos!
