I’ve always tried to internalize this by accepting Christ’s call without questioning. Four and a half years ago, I heard a call; and I followed. I ended up here at the Catholic Community of the Holy Spirit; 6 months pregnant, having left the only job I had in my adult life … but Jesus calls on his time, not ours. In the past four and a half years, I’ve tried my hardest to follow Christ and make disciples of the children and youth to which I minster. I sincerely hope I’ve been successful. My time here has marked some of the best moments of my life (bringing both of my sons into this world) and the worst moment of my life (losing my brother far too young). Through it all, I’ve been cloaked in love and support from the clergy, the staff, and each of you, my parish community.
As many of you know by now, my husband has accepted a promotion and he’s relocated to Vermont. Our sons and I will be joining him at the end of March. I feel strongly that Jesus is calling us to live more simply and intentionally and that Jesus is calling me to be more attentive to our children… to make intentional disciples of our children. And so, we will follow this call and see where it takes us! Please pray for me and my family as we embark on this new journey.
