Sister Eucharia Maria Lifrieri, Hermit in New Jersey

Bishop Serratelli of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Patterson, New Jersey, celebrated a Mass for the Rite of Perpetual Profession of Vows of Sister Eucharia Maria Lifrieri, at Bethlehem Hermitage recently. Sister Eucharia made her final profession dedicating her life forever to Christ and during the celebration, she made her Eremitic Consecration as a Hermit of Bethlehem.
Founded by Father Eugene Romano, Hermits of Bethlehem are Catholic men and women who live as a Laura of Consecrated Hermits of Diocesan Right. Their lives are nourished by daily Eucharistic Liturgy, Eucharistic Adoration, Liturgy of the Hours and Lectio Divina. A Hermit is one called by God to live a life of unceasing prayer and penance in the silence of solitude by a consecrated life of obedience, poverty and celibate love for the praise of God and the salvation of the world.
