My Mission: bringing Christ to others and bringing others to Christ at St. Mary’s school in Alton, IL. I was teaching preschool to third grade religion as well as other responsibilities during the school day including answering phones and leading 5th grade patrol students out to stop traffic for walkers. All of this was focused on Christ and allowing others to know the great love Christ has for them.
At our Provincial House I had many beautiful examples of how to live religious life through our vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience. My Sisters inspired me to spend time with the Lord, which built community and brought forth the fruits of Sisterly love among each other. The love of Christ inspired me to delve deeper into gratitude and joy. In these I hope to live our charism of making Christ’s merciful visible.
