How to Become a Nun

Sister Jane Riha, OSF

May 15, 2020

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.

A wise Sister once advised me: “Tonette, live your life and live it to its fullest potential. If God is calling you to a religious vocation, you will not be able to run from it. Enjoy yourself, and let God do the controlling.”

Several Sisters were members of my parish folk choir; at one point I looked at them and thought: "do I dare ask to be a sister?" I didn't know if they would accept me because I was from a divorced family.

As a Sister of St. Joseph, living God’s story of love for all of us, I have come to know that we are, as Jesus dreamed, all One, as he is in God and God is in him.
