I am grateful for my call to religious life. At first I was not certain that I was in the right place but as I lived with other Sisters I became convinced that we were on the right path. It has been a journey of struggle but also one with many joys. Learning to love as Jesus did and reaching out to others in compassion has been gratifying. I am grateful to family, community and all who have helped me through the years.
