General Councilor, Stella Maris Province
The wonderful, loving example of MSCs who were my teachers in our parish elementary school and at Mother Cabrini High School
Dating and pursuing a career in teaching were satisfying but not enough. I kept feeling a pull towards more.
“One thing only does God ask of you: to act justly, to love tenderly and to walk humbly with your God.” Micah 6:8
In my room, in chapel or outdoors with Sacred Scripture or just listening in silence
Blessings: living with others who share their dreams, experiences, ways that they are God-touched, and being gifted by the various creative expressions that they so generously give to all of us. Challenges: dealing with folks from different cultural backgrounds, ages, and customs…respecting the differences and celebrating the unique contributions these bring to community life.
I couldn’t imagine being in any other community; our global connections, inclusion of lay collaborators in all that we do, and our openness to explore new frontiers continues to excite me. We have a passion for mission and invite others to “walk” with us in this faith journey.

Walking, swimming, dancing, and reading…I also enjoy a good movie and always enjoy visiting with family and friends

Be open to the Spirit’s lead and trust that God loves you so much and only wants the best for you
