Singing Handmaids in 1999

This photo was captured in 1999 at the Motherhouse for a candlelight procession up the cloister. You can notice one Sister, Sister Mary Patricia of the Holy Souls, with her hand to her ear to pick up the strains of what the Sisters behind her are singing. It’s not just about singing the right hymn together, but also the right verse. The cloister hall was particularly acoustic at that spot.
