A formal inauguration ceremony was held on the evening of March 17th 2012. Mother Maria Francesca, Sister Maria Clare and Sister Maria Solanus professed their final vows to Bishop Terry Flynn witnessed by a packed congregation.
“Assisi House,” their convent, will support the spiritual and other needs of the local community in which the nuns live. As well as vows of poverty, chastity and obedience, they added a fourth vow of hospitality. Hospitality for all, regardless of faith, gender, ethnicity or any other kind of self limiting segregation.
