My vocation story

As an undergraduate at Marywood I noticed an IHM Sister in a small group of individuals conversing. I really could not believe she was a nun. She broke ideas I previous constructed about nuns. She seemed so relatable, joyful, and relaxed- the beauty of this IHM Sister flowed from her interactions with others in the group. This observation was monumental. 


What I love
about the Catholic Church

First, the social teachings provide a way to connect this day with the way that Jesus lived out his life. Second the tools to examine one's self and do the work to live a life like Jesus.  I love that there is a vocation to service through religious life.
