Sisters to host virtual ‘A day in the life of a Sister’
Single women ages 18-42 who are interested in learning more about Catholic Sisters are invited to a virtual mini-retreat from 7:30-8:45 p.m., on Tuesday, March 21. You will join Sister of Providence Sister Tracey Horan, SP, who will take you through what a day is like in her life as a young sister.
During the informal gathering, participants can reflect on what religious life is like now as Sister Tracey shares about her story of becoming a sister and about her ministry at the Kino Border Initiative, where she trains and accompanies students, parishioners and people migrating as they learn about the border reality, share their stories, and transform hearts, minds and policies toward migration with dignity.
“I think for women discerning entering religious life, it’s essential to connect with people who are actually living it,” Sister Tracey said. “I remember when I was discerning. It took me a while to really understand what it meant to join a Congregation, what life was like ‘behind the scenes.’
“Hopefully, conversations like this help paint a picture and also support young women in whatever stage of their discernment journey they might find themselves.”
Sister Tracey will answer any questions participants may have about life as a Catholic sister today.
She will also share about her life as a Sister of Providence and will answer any questions participants may have.
“Women interested in religious life today should know that there are many shapes and sizes of what it means to be a religious sister,” Sister Tracey added. “We are contemplative and in action; we are advocating in Washington, D.C., and responding on the front lines of injustice. We are gardeners and teachers and doctors and community organizers.
“There is not one mold you have to fit into. It’s more about whether a single-hearted life committed to Gospel living with others fits with your heart’s deepest desires. The rest falls into place.”
