We Redemptoristines of the Thailand foundation had our first profession on May 23. Sister Sujittra pronounced the temporary vows of Chastity, Poverty and Obedience. She has been with us for a year of postulancy and a two-year novitiate.
The profession ceremony took place during a concelebrated Mass at the Redemptorist Church of St. Thomas Aquinas. Father Provincial Apisit Kritsaralam of the Thailand Province was the main celebrant, with more than 30 concelebrants – primarily Redemptorists, but also a few visiting priests. Fr. Leo Travis, chaplain for the Redemptoristines, gave the homily. Sr. Joan received the vows in the name of the Church and the Order of theMost Holy Redeemer. Sr. Sujittra’s parents and other family members, friends and benefactors also were present
