“Think of us as strongly united,
incapable of ever being separated,
because separation is impossible
in the close union created by
holy charity.”

Vocation News

Vocation/Formation Corner

October 22, 2020

Although it feels like time has been moving slower since this pandemic began, I still find myself keeping plenty busy. Lately, most of my time has been devoted to my ministry at Working In Neighborhoods (WIN) and serving on different Motherhouse Renovation Project committees. It’s been especially exciting to work on the design for the new La Casa del Sol building!

At WIN, I’m currently helping develop several affordable single-family houses that will be sold to first-time homebuyers. This means coordinating with architects, engineers, contractors, and other professionals to get the homes designed and built. Later, I’ll help market the homes and work with potential buyers. The pandemic and recession have caused some delays, but now we’re getting ready to break ground on three new homes and start rehabbing another.

We’ve also gained momentum with our volunteer program, of which I’m the primary coordinator. After putting all of WIN’s volunteer activities on hold back in March, we’re once again starting to schedule groups who help with our housing projects as well as our community garden and our drive-through Produce Pop-Ups. Meanwhile, our team of financial counselors, energy educators, community organizers and more are also working hard to keep all of WIN’s programs moving forward in this crazy time. I continue to be so grateful for the opportunity to grow and learn in this ministry!

Debunking Religious Life Myths

It’s National Vocation Awareness Week! Throughout the week the Sisters of Charity of Cincinnati will be refuting myths about vocations to religious life.

Myth 1: No one is entering religious orders.

Myth 2: Most newer members are older or second-career candidates.

Myth 3: Traditional or conservative communities are the only communities attracting new members.

Myth 4: Entering religious life is a last resort.

Myth 5: New members would prefer to live alone.
