 20 Profession Site of Father Paul

  On July 27, 1900, underneath a white tent left over from the Spanish American War, Father Paul made his vows of poverty, chastity and obedience on this spot. The Profession ceremony was the fulfillment of the words, "You will have to wait seven years before this Society becomes a fact," which he had heard in prayer seven years earlier, when he discovered the name for the Society he and Mother Lurana would found. The site is now marked with a roofed stone shrine to Our Lady of the Atonement.
