2011 Rite of Commitment
Providence Associates Director Sister Diane Mason welcomed 15 Providence Candididate-Associates to the Providence family on Saturday, Nov. 12, 2011. Associates, candidates, sisters, family and friends came from near and very far to participate in this year’s Rite of Commitment and Renewal in the Church of the Immaculate Conception.
Feeling more like spring than autumn, the day began for the candidates with a short rehearsal in the church followed by lunch. Candidates and their companions then gathered in the auditorium in Owens Hall for prayer before walking to the church for the Eucharistic Liturgy.
Mass included a reflection by General Superior Sister Denise Wilkinson followed by the Rite of Commitment. Nearly 40 Providence Associates participated in the Renewal of Commitment.
