    Hi, I am Angelette Robertson and I have been thinking about becoming a nun. I think about it off and on throughout the years. …. I ended up staying with these missionaries who became my mentors as well as friends. I have always wanted to know about missions so this was my opportunity and it was the most wonderful time yet challenging time for me.

    My background consist of working with many diverse populations such as people with addictions, homelessness, at risk youth, prison population, and any other population you can think of. I myself have experienced homelessness…. 20 years ago I promised the Lord I would go any where He sent me, and it has been a long, lonely, and hard road. I just want my life to mean something to God. I want to make a positive difference in people’s lives. I do not want to think about me anymore. Thank you for taking the time to read my message and may you continually be blessed and please pray for me. I desperately need to know what, where, how, and when the next move will take place.

    We offer a variety of ways that you can volunteer with us in our Ministries. We also have retreat opportunities that may be helpful to you. These would be ways that you can get to know some of the Ursuline Sisters.

  5. We suggest a couple of steps…in your prayer ask God to give you direction in discerning this desire to become a nun. Secondly, you might want to get to know a few nuns in your location, see what their life entails, talk with them, volunteer with them.

    Be assured of our prayers for your journey.
