Sister Claire takes the oath of office.
Sister Claire receives the constitutions.

 On June 15th, Sister Claire Houareau was elected Superior General of the Sisters of St. Joseph of Cluny. Ninety delegates from around the world gathered in the Crypt Chapel for the election. Mgr. Michel Golfier presided as the representative of Mgr. Andre Vingt-Trois, Archbishop of Paris. After the election, the delegates individually congratulated Sister Claire and went in procession to the Motherhouse Chapel where the community members waited to greet the new Superior General.
More pictures will be posted on Cluny USA and Canada photos.
