Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross in Green Bay, WI

Growing up in a large family -- I’m the youngest of 11 -- fairness was very important to me. Through my relationship with the Sisters of St. Francis of the Holy Cross, I see the values of mercy, forgiveness, letting go of stuff, and grace.

I treasure singing with my sister Anne in the choir. I have experienced Alpha (a discipleship process in this Diocese) and was invited to be a table facilitator. I continue to be involved with Koinonia weekend retreats by providing music ministry, giving talks and working behind the scenes.

In the capacity of a pastoral minister, I find myself exercising our charism of presence while driving people to and from medical appointments. I marvel at the privilege to walk with God’s precious people on their journey. There is joy in my heart for the gift of being an Associate.
