What is the key to your fidelity?
What has kept you faithful to your vocation as a Sister?
"The mystery of my vocation continues to surprise me -- that God called me to Religious Life! Each new day requires an acceptance of that invitation and I have found that I can only remain faithful to that invitation by being faithful to prayer and being thankful for the support and love of those who are part of my life." -- Sister Doris
