My name is Sabina Abbadessa. I am 24 years old and am from
As an only child I received an immense amount of love and attention from my Mom
(Sabina) and Dad, (Paul). I am so grateful that I was raised in a loving home
which afforded me the gift of a Catholic education. The greatest example of
this happened for me at Franciscan University of Steubenville. It was here that
I first met our sisters. As a Catechetics and Theology student I was able to be
taught by one of the sisters. Wilmington Delaware
I also belonged to the women’s discernment household which this community advises. Through the encounters I had with the sisters on campus my heart was drawn deeper to the Lord, even after my graduation in 2016. Some of the hobbies which I enjoy include running, volleyball, singing and listening to music. I find a great comparison in sports to the spiritual life. The same perseverance an athlete uses to train is compatible to the continuous striving for holiness in our daily lives. As for singing, I have been able to praise the Lord with song throughout most of my life and it gives me great joy to continue this. I am so grateful the Lord has brought me this far in my discernment. I look forward to seeing how He will continue to form me in His merciful love, so that I too can bring this love to others.
