The Benedictines of Mary

From a reader:

Earlier this month, two Sisters of the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles made their First Profession at The Priory of Our Lady of Ephesus, in the Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, Missouri. The vows were received by Bishop Robert Finn during a Mass in the Extraordinary Form, the Mass the Sisters feel privileged to have every day. To support their monastic life of prayer and work, the Benedictines of Mary design and create beautiful liturgical vestments, and have recently ventured into the world of musical recording. Last year's release of "Advent at Ephesus" launched the Sisters to the top of the Billboard Charts for Classical Music. Their new CD recording, "Angels and Saints at Ephesus," scheduled to be released on May 7, 2013 is intended to bring the beauty of sacred music to the lives of its listeners. Please visit their website for more information on the life and work of the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles, or to order their recordings.

Here are some photos of the aforementioned profession:
