"What are you waiting for?" asked one of the sisters at the 'Dubuque's Got Sisters' weekend that I was attending for the third time. These words hit home as I found myself without an answer.

Sister Debra Weina, SSJ-TOSF

February 27, 2019

The process of discernment taught me that Sisters are human, community life is messy and conflicts happen--and once I embraced this I could move forward and live the gift of who I was to this world.

Sister Phuong Vu, OP

February 22, 2019

From Communist Vietnam to a new life in America--it wasn’t until I attended my first three-day Ignatian Spirituality retreat that I truly felt the real presence of God. In the silence of the retreat, I began to understand God’s unconditional love for me through his persistence, companionship, and guidance.
