A surprising pairing

Sister Misty Garriga, CDP

Hot off the press: I have been paired up with Sister Misty Garriga, a contemporary woman, who recently professed her vows and calls the Congregation of Divine Providence her home.

The mere fact that Misty is a newly professed sister has uprooted my expectations of meeting with an older individual and planted a whole other seed. Enter Sister Misty, and my prefabricated wall starts to crumble. With her very presence, the ideas I had conjured about the life of women religious begin to deconstruct. I am thoroughly captivated to learn more about her life and how it has led to the Congregation of Divine Providence.

I can’t wait for our Thursday dinner date!
