The Coolest Thing You Will See Today: a Tap Dancing Nun!

Deacon Greg Kandra - published on 01/19/16

Posted on Facebook with this note:

God used Sr. Kibeho’s old passions of dance on the day of the Investiture of the Religious Habit as her and her father tap danced at the reception. She is so beautiful and full of joy!

It was posted in mid-January. From what I can piece together, this is at St. Kateri’s Novitiate in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. (The picture above appears to be with Washington’s retired Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.)

About the order:

The Institute Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará, a religious community of Diocesan Right, was founded by Rev. Carlos Miguel Buela on March 19, 1988 in San Rafael, Argentina. The Institute Servants of the Lord and the Virgin of Matará and The Institute of the Incarnate Word (IVE), comprised of religious priests and brothers, along with the Third Order make up the Religious Family of the Incarnate Word.
