We grounded ourselves, stated our intentions and had a beautiful ceremony that helped us to remember why we are here, what we're working for, and what we hope to achieve with the Sisters. It reaffirmed my decision to join the Vancouver Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, and validated the important work that we're doing. We closed the ceremony off by adding some ingredients of our own: some dried rose petals from the base of the AIDS Memorial - to help us remember the many brave men and women who lost the battle before us, and who helped shape the direction of GLBTQI rights in Vancouver and elsewhere. I'm proud to be a Sister - thank you so much Merry Peter for giving us such a special gift!!
