My vocation story to the Oblate Sisters of Providence                                                            started in 2004, when I was searching through a book                                                           called A Guide to Religious Ministries for Catholic Men                                                          and Women.  One morning I came across the                                                                            congregation called the Oblate Sisters of Providence,                                                            founded by Mother Mary Lange in Baltimore, Maryland.                                                         When I read through the brief summary of the history
of the congregation I became interested, and was very drawn to their charism.  I wrote to their vocation director the next day.  After correspondence by letter and telephone, I was able to arrange a visit with the Sisters.  During my time at the Motherhouse I felt that I had found a home where I could continue to nurture my vocation to the religious life.

After that visit, my interest in the congregation
grew stronger.  I attended a couple of discernment
weekend programs and felt ready to make a
decision about entering.  In 2007 the Superior
General of the Oblate Sisters asked me to apply in
writing.  I responded immediately and in June I
was accepted as a candidate.  I was received into
the formation wing of the community on July 1,                                                                         2007 and became a novice nine months later.

I made my first profession of vows on March 25, 2009.  I am grateful to the Superior General and her Council, my vocation director Sr. Stephen, all the Oblate Sisters of                                                                               Providence and to God, for giving me a                                                                                       wonderful home and community to fulfill my                                                                               call to the consecrated life.
