We are so blessed! Sunday, July 26, was a beautiful day as Sister Corbin Hannah professed perpetual vows as a Sister of Providence and Sister Teresa Kang professed her first vows. Covid 19 with its masks and physical distancing and loved ones watching from afar via livestream could not dampen the joy and the beauty of this celebration. We are so thankful to Sisters Corbin and Teresa for joining their lives to our community and giving themselves to bring God’s loving care to a world in need.
