Current Ministry: Immigration Ministry

Motto: Love

I am grateful for my 60 years in the Sisters of Mercy. I have been blessed by the support of friends and community members throughout the years. My ministry in education and pastoral ministry in hospitals and parishes has offered me opportunities for growth and graces. In the last ten years I have developed a passion for ministry with immigrants, first on the border with Mexico and currently in visits to detained immigrants in two county jails.
