Mount Angel, Oregon
I love people very much; I am joyful, lively, very blessed, and in love with the Lord! I am both the youngest and the first in my family to seriously pursue a religious vocation. I graduated from Thomas Aquinas College in May of 2017, and I am a Candidate with the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles.

After discerning with the Carmelite Sisters of the Most Sacred Heart of Los Angeles for eighteen months, I am so abundantly grateful to our dear Lord that I am now a Candidate with these beautiful Sisters. In this period of Candidacy I am blessed to continue pursuing my vocation and discerning the Lord's call in a more integrated way with the community- living their prayer life with them, and working with the Sisters in the apostolate. Steadily, beautifully I am learning in prayer, classes, and experience more about the call to serve our Lord in Carmel.
I desire with all of my heart to serve our Lord with these radiant Sisters, serving the community through teaching, retreat work, and elderly care. This beautiful invitation from the Lord has filled my heart completely! I truly cannot express to you the great urgency within me to respond to this call as well as the overwhelming joy with which it fills me.
I have just graduated from college this past May, and so I do have student debts to repay before I am permitted to enter postulancy. I ask that you prayerfully consider if and how much you are able to donate to assist me in meeting my goal. Any and every small donation is a very welcome contribution to the whole! I have full faith that our Lord will multiply every small gift to supply the necessary funds for my entrance. Please leave your name with a donation, and you shall always be remembered very specially in my prayers.
Our good Lord will bless you abundantly for your generosity!
(It should be noted, however, that there is no cap on my request for prayer donations... :) Please do remember me in your prayers, and you will certainly be in mine!)
May God bless and reward you!
