One particularly beautiful thing that I have noticed about talking with women religious is that they do not shy away from depth. So often in our everyday conversations with one another we only skim the surface of what’s really going on. We ask, “How are you?” and accept “Fine” as an answer. When...

Before coming to St. Kate’s I had very little direct contact with Catholicism. Most of what I knew about Catholics came from The Sound Of Music with Julie Andrews, history classes, and a few stories that my mom told about growing up catholic. I had never met a nun or a sister and I didn’t know a...

I'd like to thank Sister Mary Soher! We've worked together on the National Catholic Sisters Week project for 5 months now and I have learned so much from her. And with all of my questions...she never made me feel bad for asking!

Before last night, which was a Tuesday by the way, I had sent Sister Vicky an email this last Saturday. I wrote asking to meet with her, asking what times and days would...

Today I went to the Nun’s Life podcast with my sister and I can confidently say I have never met a group of women who are more beautiful than these sisters I have encounter in this last month. Perhaps these women don't fit societies’ idea of beauty, but they are so beautiful. Each sister...

There are so many sisters who have impacted my life. They all happen to be from St. Benedict's monastery in St. Joseph, MN. The three who stand out as women who became my mother when I needed one most are Sisters Jacquelyn Dubay, Beth Pankake, Mary Anthony Wagoner. Each of these women has nurtured...

Yesterday we had our very first training session for the project. But I’ll get to that part later. More importantly we were all given schedules with the names of our assigned Sisters and their contact information. I didn’t know we were getting that information yet, so I was taken a bit by surprise...
