Sister Patricia OliverSister Patricia Oliver

60-year Jubilarian

Entered: September 8, 1957 – Cumberland, Rhode Island

Current Ministry: Volunteer, ministry of spiritual direction

Motto: Into Your hands


This has been my philosophy: “When we have stopped dancing, singing, being enchanted by stories, or finding comfort in silence, this is when we have experienced loss of soul." (Angeles Arrien). I'd add we always need to dream. A song I sing in my mind is, "I Hope You Dance,” by Lee Ann Womack. It has influenced my life in Mercy.
