Description

"In 2008, 13 women who had entered the Loretto novitiate as postulants in 1961 gathered for a reunion at a rustic home in the Missouri Ozarks. Within that group, there were two members of the congregation. Among the remaining 11, some had left during training, others after several years of service. ... We determined to produce an informal, personal record of our Loretto novitiate memories. It would be a gift to the Loretto Community for the 2012 celebration of the bicentennial of the Sisters of Loretto and the 50th jubilee year of the sisters in our novitiate class: Sisters Sandy Ardoyno, Donna Day, Sharon Kassing, Carol Ann Ptacek, Helen Santamaria, and Mary Louise 'Billie' Vandover. Another class member who remained in the order, Sister Lucy Ruth Rawe, died in 2003"--Preface.
