During their Congregational retreat, the Grey Nuns of the Sacred Heart received an updated prayer book traditionally known as the Vade Mecum. Prayers revered by the Congregation were updated with contemporary language, and new imagery. The prayer book also includes reminders of the Yardley Motherhouse and other convents, as well as special touchstones for the Congregation.
This project originated with the Committee for the Incorporation of New Members (Vocation/Formation Committee) with the hope that it would serve to renew the special place of these prayers for the Congregation and also to provide a starting point from which we could share our spirituality with discerners who may come our way. Please pray with us that these goals will come to fruition.
Many thanks to the named members of the committee, and the wise women who went before and who realized the importance of these prayers and devotions.
