Sister Jayne Erickson made her First Monastic Profession on Friday, September 17, 2021, in Our Lady Queen of Peace Chapel at Evening Prayer.
The duration of First Monastic Profession is three to six years. It is a time of fuller immersion in the Benedictine way of life, a time for the Sister to deepen her spirituality, to study The Rule of St. Benedict and the Monastic Profession, and to become more fully integrated into the Community, which in this case, is St. Scholastica Monastery of Duluth, Minnesota.
The Rite of First Monastic Profession was presided over by Prioress Sister Beverly Raway. Sister Jayne’s witnesses were Sister Teri Spinler and Sister Jeanne Ann Weber. Her novitiate director was Sister Donna Schroeder.
