Sister Miryam Anastasia Ludmilla made a commitment to the Dominican community at the newly-finished Queen of Peace monastery. She was excited about taking her first vows, saying they held special significance for herself and for others at the ceremony.

Religious sisters at Queen of Peace Monastery recently celebrated another first. This time it was the first vows of Sister Miryam Anastasia Ludmilla of Christ.

"I have always wanted to be a sister to every single person in the world. Now everyone calls me 'sister' when they see me!" Sister Ludmilla exclaimed after she professed her first vows Feb. 2.

She donned a black veil for the event as she took her first vows at the monastery just outside Squamish.
