Meet Our New Novice, Sister Mary Brigid!

On March 9, 2014, the Sisters of St. Rita welcomed Sister Mary Brigid into the novitiate.  Welcomed in a Vespers ceremony at the community’s convent in Racine, Wisconsin, she will continue in her formation there. 

During the ceremony, Sister Teresa, our Novice Directress from the Motherhouse in Wuerzburg, Germany, presented Sister Mary Brigid with the Rule of St. Augustine, the community's Constitutions, and the final document of the community's last General Chapter.
