Kelly Moline’s Rite of Initiation took place on Thursday, August 7, 2014 in the Atrium at Dominican Sisters of Springfield, IL Sacred Heart Convent . All of the Sisters in attendance joyfully embraced Kelly Moline as a Dominican Sister of Springfield, Illinois! Many Sisters traveled a long distance from their ministries to witness and take part in the Rite of Initiation.
Kelly was received as a novice and will now study with the Collaborative Dominican Novitiate starting on Wednesday, August 13, 2014. God’s Peace and Love be with you, Kelly! Love, your Dominican family!
Kelly read from the holy Gospel according to St. John.
“This is my commandment: love one another as I love you. No one has greater love than this, to lay down one’s life for one’s friends. You are my friends if you do what I command you. I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard form my Father. It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give to you. This I command you: love one another.”
The Gospel of the Lord.
