Profession at Saint Placid Priory

Sister Laura Swan, OSB, writes: “September 8th, Sister Julian Cleary made her Perpetual Monastic Profession. Due to COVID-19, her ritual was ‘live streamed’ to her family and some Oblates. Their images ‘hung’ on our chapel wall, almost like having them with us. A proper celebration (lots of laughter) followed.”
