A Brooklyn novice is one step closer to sisterhood after she took her first profession of vows at St. Joseph’s Chapel in New Jersey.
Sister Jessica Castillo, from East New York, Brooklyn took her first vows with the Salesian Sisterhood more than a week ago, along with two other novices.
These vows are only temporary as the sisters engage in their orders’ ministry and live in the community, before they eventually take their perpetual vows in a few years.
Sister Castillo spoke with Currents News about how she was first called to be a salesian sister.
Brooklyn Bishop Robert Brennan congratulated her on her vows and said we will be sure to pray for her in her vocation on Facebook.
