Why Did Dozens of Religious Sisters Show Up at This Rural Michigan Ice Cream Stand?

Dozens of Religious Sisters of Mercy of Alma, Michigan, stop at Merrill Whippy Dip in rural Michigan to celebrate a postulant member’s profession of vows for religious life with Bishop Robert D. Gruss of Saginaw, near Lake Huron, on Aug. 16, 2023.

The nuns, returning from Saginaw’s Cathedral of Mary of the Assumption where Sister Mary Agnes Graves professed her perpetual vows, arrived at Whippy Dip dressed in their distinctive veils and habits.
