“Without the school, I wouldn’t be here:” Sister Mary Agnes Oborny Makes Her Final Vows

On Saturday, September 17th, Sister Mary Agnes Oborny (’13) made her final profession as a member of the Norbertine Canonesses of the Bethlehem Priory of St. Joseph.

Sister, known as Megan before taking her religious name, attended Wyoming Catholic College for two years, from 2009-2011. And while she fondly recalls loving everything about the College—the academics, its emphasis on faith, the friends and environment that surrounded her—God was calling her to a different place. A little over eleven years ago, she entered the cloistered convent of the Norbertine Canonesses in Tehachapi, California.

“My experience at Wyoming Catholic College was incredible,” she said at the community celebration following Saturday’s ceremony. “Without the school, I wouldn’t be here!”

Reflecting back on her time in Lander, she says that “it was at Wyoming Catholic that I found the strength to be truly Catholic in this modern world; it was here that I had time to dedicate to prayer and had friends who supported me in my search.” That support and friendship was on display at her final profession in the person of Father Trevor Lontine (’14), the College’s first alumni priest, who was ordained to the priesthood earlier this year.

Please keep Sister in your prayers, that her beautiful vocation may continue to blossom in the mountains of California, and that the spiritual and intellectual life offered to the students of Wyoming Catholic College may continue to bear such rich fruit.
