A Letter from the Vocation Minister
Welcome to the Vocation section of the Sylvania Franciscan Sisters’ web site! Do you come because you have been stirred with interest and inquiry?? Well, seeking information and knowledge is the first step, so thank you for daring to visit our site. I was just doing the same thing!
I would like to direct your attention to “A Day in Our Life” in the "About Us" section. This month we have highlighted Sister Penny Dunn who is an absolute delight! She is a humble woman, yet willing to extend herself beyond her comfort zone time and time again! Her story here is certainly worth the read. Sister Penny's story gives you one example of the dynamic women who have given their life to not just follow Christ, but to share that Christ with those in need…in need of life!!
I also want to direct your attention to “Getting to Know Us”. There you will find various opportunities—mostly informal and inviting—to meet Sisters personally, pray with us, converse with us and just get to know us discovering what gives us life…and cause for laughter and love!! Take a chance and move beyond your comfort zone!!
On the home page of our web site, you will note our blog box. Click it and note that weekly we post a blog (as well as archive the old ones) from one of our sisters. This is another opportunity to learn about an individual who also reflects a bit of our whole community. We would love it if you would respond to the topic or to something specific the individual sister wrote about. Dialogue makes the best conversation!!
Blessings on your journey through our web site, but also as you discern your call to live God’s will for you. If you are honest with yourself, it just may take you out of your comfort zone!!
