Welcome Sister Josephine
March 21, 2017 8:10 AM
We are pleased to welcome Sister Josephine, a Hospital Sister from the Indian Province, who will join our Loretto Home staff in April. She arrived at St. Francis Convent yesterday.
(The following information was taken from the Generalate's website.) I was born on April 8, 1983 at Ottamam, Tamil Nadu, India (southern India). I am the eldest in the family with two sisters and one brother. In addition to my parents who were supportive of my interest in becoming a Sister, I had a loving grandfather who encouraged my vocation. The inspiration of my grandfather was always at the back of my mind and I nurtured it as I was growing up. He was the one who planted the seed of faith in me and was my role model and guide.
After finishing higher secondary studies, I joined our Congregation on July 1, 2000 at the age of 18. During the four years of formation, I had lots to learn and there were struggles and difficulties to adjust with the newness of this life. However, I was ready to respond to His call. By God’s grace, I Professed First Vows on April 20, 2005 and Final Vows on May 25, 2013. I am a nurse and have completed the studies of General Nursing and Midwifery in 2011. I worked in our health center in Ramgarh for two years and recently served in our health center in Pithora.
I find happiness and joy to be a part in the healing ministry of Jesus. I am proud to be a member in our Franciscan family and I love my Religious Life and my Congregation. I thank God Almighty for His abundant goodness, love, and the opportunities given to me to serve humanity.
