Sister Joseph Ellen on the needs of the inner-city parish community

One of my goals has been to try to advocate for ethnic diversity and representation from the inner city on various diocesan boards and councils. In most dioceses, the parishes that need assistance the most cannot afford to hire parish staff, and thus have no voice or representation at conferences or workshops. Somehow, the Church has to find a way to include everyone as we proclaim to be “One Bread, One Body”.


After nearly 30 years as a teacher and pastoral associate at the former St. Angela's Parish in Chicago, Sister of Providence Sister Joseph Ellen Keitzer continues her spiritual ministry with the people on Chicago's west side.
