White Dresses

Here is Clare and her friend looking very pretty in their white dresses. The monastery often has special events in which the girls get the opportunity to dress up and participate in a procession in which the priests, brothers, altar servers and everyone else walks along behind.
On the 13th day of each month Our Lady of Fatima is remembered and the procession goes from the church to the grotto, a special area containing many various sites containing remembrances of different saints. These sites ("shrines") assist the faithful remember those who have gone before us in the faith and are now with God in heaven.
