A Clothing and Profession
The Bishop of Cambysopolis presided at a ceremony of clothing and profession held at Nazareth House, Hammersmith, on the feast of Our Lady Help of

The following young ladies received the white veil: Misses H. Meenan (Sister M. Matthias), K. Casey (Sister Clare Francis), M. B. Keenan (Sister St. Victor), B. Lynch (Sister M. Simeon), A. Carney (Sister Joseph Philomena), J. Brown (Sister M. Athelstan), J. Ginty (Sister M. Basil), M. Cunningham (Sister M. Bega), and M. Guinan (Sister Michael Aloysius).
Sisters making their first vows were Sisters M. Margherita (Reidy), M. Loretta (Halton), Joseph Simeon (Murphy), St. Regina (McGoldrick), and M. Wilhelmina (Shaffrey).
Those admitted to perpetual vows were Sisters M. Constantia (Nolan), St. Edward (Hayes), M. Barnabas (White), Columba Joseph (McCormack), and also on the same day in the foreign houses, Sister M. Dolorosa (O'Leary) at Durban and Sister Agnes Cecilia (O'Donaghue) at Port Elizabeth.
After the Te Deum and prayers for be'nefactors, the bishop gave Benediction.
