There needs to be a balance in navigating the roles of daughter and Catholic sister. Community supports that balance and encourages me to take time for myself yet pushes me when I need it. Parents can be at ease knowing their children can still be their children and be sisters.

“God gets you where God wants you to be.” I have made that statement many times in my life. I say it partially to convince myself because where God wants me is not always where I want to be.

A vocation is a gift of God, a gift for one’s journey of life and a gift for others. As a young teenage girl, I was attracted to my particular community by how the Sisters gave witness. They were joyful, prayerful, relational women, clearly at ease with people.
