Each one of us has a story to share: our life! Each one of us is on a journey. Some of you are discerning where the Lord is calling you on this journey. Listen to Sr. M. Benedicta as she shares how the Lord called her. Maybe you can relate!

Sister Benedicta your vocation video is very inspiring....I pray it will touch the life of one young woman to give her yes just as you did. Is the music sang during the portion of the video when you spoke done by your fellow sisters? It is absolutely beautiful -- truly sounds angelic.

God bless you!
In Christ,
Sister M. Consolata, FSGM
