I was blessed to have grown up in a large, devout Catholic family. The seed of my religious vocation was nurtured by parents who sent me to a Catholic elementary school and who made sure I attended Mass every Sunday. During high school, college, and my teaching career, my heart’s desire was to get married and have a large family. However, through many different experiences as time went on, I slowly realized that God was calling me to religious life. I finally surrendered and said “yes” to religious life. God led me to this Community and here I still am today.
“Be not afraid, I go before you always. Come follow Me and I will give you rest.” and “With God all things are possible.”
Most Special Moment
During the Mass when I made my perpetual profession of vows of poverty, chastity and obedience before my family, my religious community and my Church community.
Words of Encouragement
Pray, pray, pray. It is very important to have daily prayer time and to be faithful to keeping that time of prayer every day. I would encourage young people who are discerning and/or living out their call to find a spiritual director or a vocation director who can help guide and support them as they discern their vocation. Also I would like to encourage them to find others in their age group who are also discerning their vocation so that they can have fellowship with each other and encourage each other in their vocational journey.
