Sister Rita’s Story

“Vocation for me is an invitation from God. For each of us it is a response to our baptismal call to be faithful to our God. Whether the call is to a single life, to married life, to religious life, we are supportive of one another on our journeys. The transformative piece for me has been God’s faithfulness! Being so loved by God, I am challenged each day to love more deeply,to live fully my vows of poverty, chastity, and obedience. Being open and present to those I serve is also transformative. My prayer is to be a woman of integrity, and with God’s grace to be faithful to my yes.”
