 |  NCR Today

It is no secret that Bishop Robert W. Finn of the Kansas City ~ St. Joseph diocese is pleased to support the women religious of his diocese. One of his special interests is providing support for a traditional order, the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of the Apostles. On Jan. 6, the Feast of the Epiphany, the Benedictines of Mary had four postulants undertake the investiture in the Benedictine Habit. The ceremony took place at the Oratory of Old Saint Patrick in Kansas City, MO, during a mass celebrated by Bishop Finn.

The ceremony is captured on the Kansas Catholic web site.

As a special honor, the Benedictines of Mary made the cappa magna for Bishop Finn for Christmas which he wore for the ocassion.

By all accounts it was a festive celebration.
