Today Sister Trish speaks with us about her years-long journey from Vietnam to the US and how she adjusted to the culture of her new home country.  If you missed last week’s episode, click to hear about the journey of discernment that eventually brought Sister Trish to the Sisters of St. Joseph of Orange — a community right in her own back yard.

Podcast Recorded:

Sister Trish Doan is a Sister of St. Joseph of Orange who is completing her master’s degree in theology. She is an engineer, a restaurateur, an immigration professional — and a former refugee who escaped from Vietnam as an unaccompanied minor. Her family’s miraculous story (over the course of a decade, Sister Trish’s parents and all seven of her siblings made their way to the United States) is matched by the journey of discernment that brought her at least to the Sisters of St. Joseph – a community right in her own back yard. This week, Sister Trish speaks with us about her vocation journey, but be sure to tune in for a special extra edition of In Good Faith next week, when Sister Trish returns to share the story of her years-long journey from Vietnam to the US.
