My journey of ministry began as an IHM ( Sister, Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary) Sister for 23 years. After leaving the convent, I served in my local parish as a lector, Eucharistic Minister, Prayer Leader, and Stephen Minister. I was a servant leader for the parish (LEAD –  LGBT Educating and Affirming Diversity) within a leadership team for three years. For four years I served as director of the Education program for the Immigration Outreach Service Center ( IOSC), I am currently an Oblate with the Benedictine Sisters of Emmanuel Monastery in Lutherville MD. Since joining the Living Water Inclusive Catholic Community, and becoming  ordained with RCWP, I have been offering communion services at Arden Courts Memory Care with patients dealing with Alzheimer’s’ and Dementia.
