Congratulations, Sister Christine!

Sister Christine with Bishop Michael Cote of Norwich, who celebrated the Mass. 

Last Saturday I was honored to concelebrate the Mass at which Sister Christine Hoffner took her final vows for the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus, an order of religious sisters whose provincial house is located in Hamden, Ct.

Although she was never a member of St. Pius X Parish, Sister Christine used to attend our Thursday night youth group when she was in high school and college.  We've been praying for her at our Sunday Masses for many years, along with the others in our community who are studying for the priesthood, the diaconate or religious life.

May God bless you, Sister Christine, with many years in his service!
