This past Thursday the Shrine was filled with vibrant joy as more than 50 Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus gathered from around the world to witness the perpetual vows of three Sisters from Ethiopia.

Sr. Asnakech Asefa, Sr. Aynalem Paulos, and Sr. Berhane Ashebo made lifelong vows of chastity, poverty and obedience in the presence of Sr. Barbara Staley, General Superior. Each asked the Holy Spirit to transform their consecration “into a commitment of love, an offering of praise, adoration and reparation in the Cabrinian spirit, so that I may bring the love of the Heart of Jesus to the World.”

Missionary Sisters from Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Eswatini, Ethiopia, Guatemala, Italy, Nicaragua, Russia, Uganda, and the United States exuberantly welcomed their new Sisters with the pax tecum, an embrace of welcome.

Mother Cabrini’s spiritual daughters remain active in 17 countries today. If you are interested in learning about what they do, or know a young woman who is exploring a vocation, visit CabriniWorld to learn more.
