Travel Journal
  • We say a fond farewell to the Sisters of Charity in Kentucky and then on to Indiana for the second half of the road trip.
  • It’s great to reconnect with Sister Mary Luke, one of our podcast guest nuns! Sister Maxine first met her on a planning team for the annual NCNWR conference (now Communicators for Women Religious).
  • Dan Stockman, a journalist for Global Sisters Report, attends the podcast and interviews Sister Heather about her journey from the Methodist to the Catholic tradition, and then to religious life as a Benedictine.
  • Our time with the sisters is an experience awesome Benedictine hospitality: “All guests are to be welcomed as Christ.”
