Moving Forward

Sisters Patricia Witulski and Valerie Luckey are moving forward. Each stage of initial formation is accompanied by vocation discernment and this discernment led both Sisters Pat and Valerie to make the request for final and first profession respectively.

On Saturday, August 5, after a community vote, Pat and Val received the blessing of their directors, Novice Director Sister Stephanie Schmidt and Scholasticate Director Sister Diane Rabe, the prioress, council and community. Profession dates will be scheduled in the fall.

Sister Pat is ministering with the refugees at St. Benedict Education Center. Sister Val, a novice, will continue her initial formation program under the direction of Sister Diane Rabe. She will be engaged in full time ministry while maintaining participation in the life and prayer of the community.

“We are so pleased to uphold Pat and Val as they prepare for their professions,” said Sister Anne Wambach, prioress. “We are stronger because of their presence and commitment.”
