Meet Sarah Lynne

My name is Sarah Lynne Gangl and I am from Brainerd, MN, which is located in north-central Minnesota. I am 24 years-old and have one older sister who is 29 years-old. I just graduated from North Dakota State University in May 2012 with a Doctorate of Pharmacy. After passing national and state exams this spring, I am now a licensed pharmacist in Illinois and Minnesota. I love being outdoors, whether it is time spent fishing, jogging, or just going for a walk. I also like to read and do crossword puzzles.

I have a special devotion to St. Joseph, who has helped me in discerning my vocation. The first time I met the Sisters in 2010 I was greatly attracted to the joy and sisterly charity I witnessed. I am so happy now to be a part of this Franciscan community. I look forward to growing in love of our God with all of my sisters.

For any young women who are discerning religious life, be patient with yourselves; God’s timing is perfect. If you stay open in prayer to His Will you will not go astray. Be honest and bring to God any part of your life or anything that is keeping you from being open and ready to do His Will.  Ask Him for the grace to desire His Will for your life and the courage to follow Him wherever He leads.
