Renewal of Vows

Posted on April 20, 2011, by Loretto Community

A Commitment to Faith, Community, Justice and Respect —With Cathy Mueller witnessing, Donna signs her name to conclude her final vows ceremony.

Spring Celebration —Butterflies grace the cover of the program for the joint celebration.

Poetry in Motion — JoAnn Gates raises the incense high above the altar at the April 25 celebratory Mass in a liturgical dance at the Preparation of Gifts. Holding the bread and wine are Barbara’s nieces, Linda and Nancy. On the altar is the chalice used by Father Charles Nerinckx.

Another take on the Alpha and Omega — Toddler Virginia Polkinghorn, the youngest visitor and the granddaughter of Barbara‘s niece, may not speak a lot yet, but she managed to speak for all at Mass with her resounding “Yeah” after Elaine’s homily. Perhaps another Loretto in the making!
