When Did You Discover Your Calling?:
I discovered my calling as a Sister while I lived in San Diego.  I had been searching for a way to serve my community, especially in the area of HIV/AIDS and equality advocacy.  I had heard of the Sisters and even had friends that where members of the order.  I spent sometime with them and decided that being a Sister was the opportunity I had been looking for.

My personal biggest goal in my ministry is the advocacy for and the achievement of equality for everyone.  I am tired of being treated as less than equal because I am queer.

Seek joy in all you do.  Don't let anyone say anything that will make you feel less of yourself.
