Introducing Sister Mary Emet, OCSO

On June 24th, the Solemnity of the Nativity of St. John the Baptist, Sister Mary Emet, OCSO (formerly Hailey) completed her postulancy and entered the novitiate of Mount St. Mary's Abbey in Wrentham, MA.

Mount St. Mary's is a Trappistine (Order of Cistercians of the Strict Observance) cloistered community of contemplative nuns located near Boston, MA.

Sr. Mary Emet grew up in the Archdiocese of Edmonton, and attended the University of Alberta before discerning a vocation to enter Mount St. Mary's Abbey. After her entrance in June 2014, she completed a year of postulancy and has now been clothed in the habit of the Order as a novice, and has received her new name.

Emet is a Hebrew word meaning "truth." 

She will continue her discernment for about two years as a novice before professing her first vows.

Pray for Sr. M. Emet as she begins a new chapter of her discernment as a novice! Sister, we are so proud of you and hold you in our hearts and prayers.
