Year of Consecrated Life Resource: A Franciscan Sister’s Discernment Journey

by Sister Julie Ann on November 24, 2014

Year of Consecrated Life: “A Franciscan Sister’s Discernment Journey” is a unique resource for the Year of Consecrated Life.

The 11 minute documentary shows Michigan native Sr. Pamela Catherine Peasel’s prayerful response to God’s calling her to be a Franciscan Sister. She candidly discusses deeply personal questions that also reflect the universal challenge of discernment. From her 2007 discernment retreat, though formation as a postulant, novice and temporary professed sister… to her recent Profession of Perpetual Vows, and her current ministry as a teacher at St. Peter’s Mission School on the Gila River Reservation.
