Sister Marie Therese makes her solemn profession of vows

newnun-webSister Marie Therese of the Heart of Jesus (formerly Krysten Smail), daughter of Richard and Mary Smail of the Diocese of Camden, made her solemn profession of vows on Sunday, Aug. 15, at the Carmelite Monastery of St. Joseph in Brooklyn, New York. Sister was a member of St. Vincent de Paul Parish, Mays Landing, where she graduated from St. Vincent de Paul School. She received her calling at the age of 12 after attending a Vocation Mass in the Diocese of Camden. After much prayer and discernment, she entered the Discalced Carmelites (cloistered order) at the age of 17 years old. She spent six months as a postulant and then received her habit and religious name. One year later, she made her first profession of vows and three years later, made her solemn profession of vows. The order follows the rules and constitution as set forth by St. Teresa of Avila.
