Benedictine Nun Makes Final Vows

Gobernador – From Our Lady of the Desert Monastery:

“We are delighted that Sister Stephen made final vows on December 21, 2023, in the presence of our Bishop from Gallup, Bishop James E. Wall.  During the Consecration, Bishop James asked Sister Stephen:

“‘Sister Stephen, do you desire to be consecrated to God before all here present and to be recognized in the Church as a sign of Her union with Jesus Christ, the Son of the Most High God?’

Sister Stephen responded, ‘Yes, with all my heart I do desire this, in your presence, Bishop James, and before the holy people of God, relying on the mercy of God.'”

The Benedictine Nuns at the monastery, located east of Farmington, serve the people of the Diocese through prayer, work, and hospitality. Congratulations to Sr. Stephen!
