In the last week Franciscan Sisters were invited to be with high school students at a Xavier High School Junior Retreat Day, Appleton, Wisconsin and Religious Education Sessions at St. Bronislava, Plover, WI. Sister Cecilia Joy, Sister Concepcion and Sister Julie Ann Sheahan responded to questions and shared a bit about themselves. Here’s one of the questions they received. Sister Cecilia Joy responds.

What is your favorite part of being a Sister?

I am truly grateful that God called me to be a sister. There are so many beautiful aspects of this vocation, but I would have to say my favorite parts are living in community, being able to serve in ministry, and having the time to develop a deeper relationship with Jesus. We sisters are truly like a family. It is a blessing to be able to pray together, learn from each other, and laugh with one another. God has called me to a place where I can use my gifts and talents in His service. Videography used to simply be a job for me, and now it is a way to share God’s love and spread His messages of hope. All of this work stems from prayer. I enjoy being able to wake up in the morning and talk with the love of my life, knowing He will be with me through whatever the day brings. He also speaks to your heart as well. May you experience His peace, and if He calls you to visit us, I look forward to meeting you again!
