Introducing Sister Celeste Mariae Therese, SV
On July 25th, the feast of St. James the Greater, Sister Celeste Mariae Therese, SV (formerly Charmaine) entered the Novitiate and received the habit of the Sisters of Life in the Bronx, NY. Sister (2nd row, far left) also received her new name. She is shown here with the nine other women who also entered the Novitiate in July.
Before discerning a vocation with the Sisters of Life, Sister Celeste lived in the Archdiocese of Edmonton, where she was an active member of St. Teresa's Parish in Millwoods.
The Sisters of Life are a New York-based Order with the particular charism of protecting and enhancing the sacredness of all human life. The community was recently featured in an article in the New York Times (check it out here).
Remember Sister Celeste in your prayers and give thanks for her "Yes" to God's call!
