September 17, 2020 Sister Servants Sing for LIHM Sisters’ Profession We are so glad for our dear friends, the Leaven of the Immaculate Heart of Mary Sisters, a community founded in the Philippines in 1991, who just celebrated the Profession of Vows of nine Sisters who are assigned in the United States. They have been patient through many years of waiting and delays! Our Sisters prepared with frequent practices at Sacred Heart Parish in order to grow accustomed to the pipe organ and acoustics that are so different from what we’re used to! The Sisters honored us by requesting that we sing for their Profession Mass, which we were so happy to do! Over the course of the summer, we worked to prepare the music for the beautiful occasion, practicing both at home and at Sacred Heart Church in Cullman, AL. We enjoyed every visit to the beautiful church, with its magnificent pipe organ and acoustics. The practices gave a special opportunity to get to know the delightful parish community there. We were blessed to be able sing the Mass, sharing many pieces that we have used for our own profession Masses over the years. You may enjoy watching the video of the profession Mass, hearing the music, and seeing the LIHM Sisters’ radiating joy! Congratulations, LIHM Sisters, and thank you for inviting us to celebrate this wonderful day with you! Here is Veni Jesu, Amor Mi, a Communion Hymn: You may watch the entirety of the Mass here: (Or Watch on the Parish Facebook Page) Five Sisters made their Perpetual Profession of Vows, with great joy. The four Sisters who made their first profession also received the religious habit and their religious names within the same Mass.
