1st religious profession of Mimose as Sister Adorer

Mimose Dauphin made her 1st profession as a religious Sister Adorer, Handmaid of the Blessed Sacrament and of Charity, on October 14, 2023. The ceremony took place in the parish of Our Lady of the Tabernacle, Madrid, Spain.

In addition to the Novitiate community in Madrid, Mimose was accompanied by General Chapter Members from the Provinces of America, Europe-Africa, Mumbai, Kolkata and the Delegation of Japan, by some members of her family from France and by Sisters from other communities in Spain.

The Sisters who have received the vows of Mimose are: Pilar Casas, Superior General; Gabriela Valot, General Councilor; and Teresa Valenzuela, outgoing Superior General.

With her “yes”, Mimose becomes a Junior Sister in our Congregation and joins in the mission of Eucharistic Adoration and Liberation, of personal integration, promotion and social reintegration of women in situations of prostitution and other situations of violence.

Below, we share the thanksgiving prepared especially by Sister Mimose for this important moment in her life:
