Elena Ainley's Clothing January 13, 2018

On January 13 Elena Ainley was clothed as a novice and was given the name of Sr. Mechtilde, after the great 13th century Benedictine saint. Sr. Mechtilde studied video game design and was working as a graphic artist when she decided to attend a Monastic Experience Weekend with us last year. After one month's observership with the community, she entered as a postulant on July 1, 2017.

The cold of the January day contrasted with the warmth and joy in our church as she pronounced her commitment to continue her discernment of her vocation with us. Please pray for her.
