Seven from KCHS visit Dominicans’ motherhouse

Seven Knoxville Catholic High School students took the opportunity Oct. 31-Nov. 1 to travel to the motherhouse of the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia Congregation in Nashville.

The trip was designed to give the young women a chance to grow in faith, experience religious life firsthand, and to pray and play with the sisters. While at the motherhouse, the girls participated in the All Saints Candlelight Vigil, where they were able to view and venerate the relics of more than 20 saints. The students slept in cells used at one time by the original boarders and now used mainly by retreatants and visiting sisters.

On Saturday, they attended the All Saints Day Solemnity Mass and played various games with the sisters on the spacious convent grounds.
