Name of Missionary Sister: Sister Renee Kittelson, MSC
Current ministry: Manager of Cabrini Senior Housing and pro life
What attracted me to a life as a Missionary Sister: The life of Mother Cabrini, the missionary aspect, and the sisters were so kind.
Experience that convinced me that religious life was the right path for me: I read the book entitled The Nun Story and saw the movie. I thought would be my secret desire but would never do anything about it. When the priest in charge of our CCD asked me if I had ever thought of becoming a nun I knew that I had to do something about my secret desire.
Favorite prayer or scriptural quote: I like Philippians 4:4-11 and Ecclesiastes 3:1-8.
Favorite way to pray: I love Charismatic prayer.
Blessings and challenges of community life: I do not live with other sisters but I do live with some seniors citizens. I am learning patience.
What I love most about being an MSC: The vows are a blessing.
Best loved ministry: Intercessory and healing prayer.
What I do for enjoyment: I enjoy writing and speaking engagements.
People might be surprised to know that I… Love to dance to rock and roll and up-beat gospel music.
My advice for those who are in discernment: Frequent mass, reconciliation and rosary. Get a spiritual director.
