“Joyfully, I thank God for the wonderful gift of leading me to Duluth and to St. Scholastica Monastery. With deep gratitude, I thank the Sisters for their acceptance, encouragement and guidance on this journey. I thank my family and friends for their enthusiastic support and for joining me in this celebration.” ~ Sister Elizabeth Farias
