About Sister Tracey

Current ministry: bilingual community organizer for Faith in Indiana

Complete the sentence: My good friend says I’m … stubborn. (I call it perseverance.)

Three things that are sure to make me smile are … a good pun, a beautiful landscape, Trevor Noah

When I am not at work or involved in ministry, you are most likely to find me … in the great outdoors

I am passionate about … healthy food

One thing most people don’t know about me is … that I once jumped off a bridge because everyone else was doing it.

    The Sisters of Providence of 2018 are quite different from the Sisters of Providence who taught me for 13 years. I could recognize them back then. Now, I would be hard pressed to differentiate one from the next door neighbor.

    Sister Tracey
    My Prayers and thoughts are with you , I know that you will bring peace and joy
    to all that you serve. I hope sometime soon in the near future we can have a visit.

    Please take care and may God Bless
