New Affiliate Linda Sellards

Linda Knocking on the DoorOn Saturday, March 12, 2011, Linda Sellards from Hermantown, Minnesota, knocked on the Monastery front door several times.  Following the Benedictine tradition, Prioress Lois Eckes welcomed Linda in and asked her intention.  With Vocation Director Sister Mary Catherine Shambour at her side, Linda addressed the assembled Community and stated her desire to become affiliated with the Sisters of St. Scholastica Monastery.  An Affiliate is the first stage in aspiring for membership in the Community.

Requesting Affiliation with Community

Sister Lois welcomed her to continue her faith journey of seeking God together with the Community.  The Sisters then led her in procession to Midday Prayer.
