Our Vocation Commercial – Be a Passionist Nun!

     Things have been kind a quiet around here with half of the Sisters making their 8-day retreat. The other half of us are the “Marthas” and are keeping things running smoothly – or at least that is our aim! 

     Last fall we had a vocation commercial made in hopes that it would be aired on EWTN. Well, it takes a lot of time to get something aired on there but I thought YOU might enjoy it and would pass it on to some young women who are discerning a vocation to religious life.  We think Sister Rose Marie did a fantastic job!  

    I have some photos which I didn’t have time to post during Lent.  I’ll be sharing them in upcoming posts.  These photos were taken on the gaudeamus day of our Vicar Sr. Mary Agnes (3rd from right). 


 Sampling Sr. Rose Marie’s chocolate chip cookies. Is there anyone who doesn’t enjoy a chocolate chip cookie right out of the oven!?  Certainly a treat on a gaudeamus day!


Here Ane Kirstine gets into action making whole wheat bread. She told me the caption under this photo should be “beware of the leaven of the postulant!”  As you can tell, nuns do have a sense of humor.

     Don’t forget to check out the commercial!

  1. Thank you for your clear explanation, Sister. I am sure that Sister Mary Agnes fulfils her duties perfectly!


  2. Thank you, Sisters, for more glimpses into your lives in the Monastery. May I just ask what is the role of Sister Mary Agnes as the ‘Vicar’ of your community? I am not familiar with this term.

    The happiness of you all in your vocations is very evident in these photographs!


    Here is a quick answer – “Vicar” – you might say she is the Superior’s “right-hand man” or rather “right-hand nun”! The Vicar is a great support to the Superior in fulfilling her role as leader of our community and also fills in for the Superior when she is unable to be present.

  3. I agree with Beth, Sisters – post the commercial on YouTube. It was a very lovely glimpse into your life, and Sr Rose Marie – you did a wonderful job. Your passion for your Lord shines through!

  4. The photo and proposed caption are very funny! I love the combination of innocence, intelligence, and holiness that shines through the pages of this blog. God bless you!

    In Jesu XPI Passio,

    David, thanks for the comment – may God be praised!

  5. That is a very charming commercial. You should put it up on You Tube. Were I a young woman, I would feel profoundly invited.

We'd love to hear from you...
