Sister Andrea Koverman to Celebrate Final Vows
The Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati are pleased to announce the Congregation will celebrate S. Andrea Koverman’s profession of final vows during a prayer service on Saturday, Aug. 14 at 10 a.m. in the Immaculate Conception Chapel at the Mount St. Joseph Motherhouse.
 
Due to the current precautions at the Motherhouse, the vow ceremony will be much more intimate than the usual communal celebration. Only Sisters, Associates and a small group of family will be present with S. Andrea in the chapel. Friends of the Sisters of Charity Community are invited to join via livestream. The link will be posted on the home page of the Sisters of Charity website (www.srcharitycinti.org). A program to follow along will also be found on the website.
 
The Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati are most grateful for S. Andrea’s ‘yes’ and for her willingness to share this day in this unusual manner.

Created by Pueblo-born sculptor Fred Darpino, a 5-foot, 4-inch life-size statue of S. Blandina is the garden’s focal point. Sisters and Associates were in attendance for the celebration in downtown Trinidad which included Mass, live musical and theatrical performances, and trolley tours of Trinidad.
