I think I am Franciscan by nature. When I was in my teens, I would sing the love songs I heard on the radio, only I sang them to God.

As the fifth of six children – 3 boys and 3 girls -- reared in a very Catholic household, I met and dated a number of nice young men. And I liked them, but nothing was as satisfying to me as spending time with God.
I loved being with the others in the novitiate: it was a disciplined life, but one filled with friendship and spent in community. You always have someone to turn to, and you will always have a friend: someone who listens and cares.

As a sister you are expected to pursue your interests and talents and you live among people who encourage you to do so.  I have loved sewing and art…and I have enjoyed both!

I love everything about religious life. It is one choice that I have never regretted.

Now I have the best job I have ever had as a religious: working with the retired sisters at the Terrace.
