Vocation Story

Sister M. Catherine Angeline, O.Carm.

I was born in Jackson, Michigan and the youngest of eight living siblings. My parents were married 65 years before my mother passed away in March 2008. I had Catholic education with the Felician Sisters through 8 th grade. I attended one year of Catholic High School and then public school. I was active with the Spirited Singles Ministry in my parish of Holy Angels as well as in our Latin and Contemporary choirs. I lived in Italy for many years doing social service work but moved to Aurora, Illinois in 1997. I have 12 nieces and nephews, 7 great-nieces and nephews! I am a certified nursing assistant, certified phlebotomist technician, and received an Associate’s Degree from Community College.

I was drawn to Carmel because of the contemplative life in action. I was drawn to the Carmelite Sisters for the Aged and Infirm in particular because of their love for Our Lady, strong Eucharistic prayer life, work among the elderly, conscientiousness and their joy. I love that the Sisters wear the religious habit and that they accepted older vocations.
