Do Franciscan Sisters have Bridal Showers

Paul Keggington

August 05, 2014

It is tradition among the Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity. The night before perpetual profession there’s a ‘Bride of Christ Shower’ (simple, yet festive reception) for the Sister(s) professing perpetual vows.  Candles and lights helped create a warm atmosphere of joyful sharing on Sister Pamela Catherine’s August 1, 2014 party.

Franciscan Bridal Shower BrideWho comes?

The party is planned by those Sisters in Temporary Vows. Sisters on our  General Administration are invited along with any Sisters who served as a support community for the Sister Pamela Catherine or for the Sisters in Temporary Profession that summer.

What else can one expect?

As you can imagine, it is light-hearted time. Of course, there are some specially chosen snacks. Wrapped mementos tend to be small and practical fitting in with our life as Sisters e.g. thank you cards are appreciative surprises. Some Sisters make hand-made gifts. Cards are full of messages showered with prayerful Sisterly-support.

For Sister Pamela Catherine’s celebration, her blood sister Diane joined in the fun by sending some decorations and other thoughtful, sweet items.
