Highlights of this past summer - quiet, relaxing time to revisit materials on the past General Chapters, and go through some of my personal "stuff."

What are you looking forward to this year? That I may "treat" Jesus more intimately as a close friend!

Advice for Someone Discerning– Get to know a religious/ a priest who can help you grow in your relationship with God. Then it is through intimate encounter with God, you may know what God wants from you.

Favorite Story as a Sister – Sometime around 1996 I taught an English class to a group of elderly Vietnamese in the St. Louis area. In order to help them learn how to pronounce an English word, I tried to explain how it sounds by using Vietnamese words. It sounded very funny, but they “got it” and seemed to progress very well.


For example, for the word “welcome,” I explained it sounds like Vietnamese sound “ueo-cằm,”  Or “What is your name?” – “uắt-i-do-nêm.” We had fun learning English like this!
