LINCOLN (SNR) – Sister John Marion and Sister Fiat Marie of the School Sisters of Christ the King made their first profession of vows in Our Lady of the Coronation Chapel at Villa Regina Motherhouse Aug. 1.
Bishop James Conley was the main celebrant and homilist of the Mass during which they made their first commitments to the Lord.
Both received the blue veil of the professed Sister and a ring, signifying their spousal relationship with Christ the King.
Sister John Marion is the daughter of Barry and Susan Feldner of Prince of Peace Parish in Kearney. She attended Benedictine College for one year prior to entering the School Sisters of Christ the King. This fall she will team-teach fifth grade at St. Teresa School in Lincoln.
Sister Fiat Marie is the daughter of Greg and Brenda Eller of St. Mary Parish in David City. She attended the University of Nebraska at Omaha for two years, where she was involved in MavCatholic and FOCUS. She also taught Totus Tuus for the Archdiocese of Omaha during the summer of 2012. Sister will begin her studies at Benedictine College this fall.
The late Bishop Glennon Flavin founded the School Sisters of Christ the King in 1976, to serve Catholic schools in the Diocese of Lincoln, for the purpose of fostering an apostolic laity.
