Sister Ann Moylan

What/who influenced you to become an SCL? 
Being in our Sodality, prayer activities, seeing my classmates leave for the Community and how happy they were.

Ministries you've loved   
Being a childcare worker for 18 years. Then going from working with the young to ministering to the elder of my parish. There is a real reward ministering to the older parishioners, the sick, the dying and then to the grieving.
     


Your hobbies, other interests
My greatest enjoyment is baking my aunt's Irish bread, my special cinnamon rolls, Spanish foods, especially burritos, and most especially "chip" chocolate cookies.

Sister Mary Agnes Hogan

Joined the SCLs:  1957

What/who influenced you to become an SCL? 
From childhood on, I hoped to be a religious. I was familiar with three communities, but in high school I went to work at St. Ann’s Hospital in Anaconda, Mont., and Sister Marie Celeste Bride was a primary influence as were the other SCLs there at the time. 

Ministries you've loved   
I’ve loved teaching, parish ministry and healthcare. I love sharing the gifts of our faith with children and adults alike.

What's special about being a Sister of Charity?   
We are committed to ministry wherever we see a need especially with the poor and vulnerable, especially with poor women and children. There are endless opportunities for growth and ongoing formation spiritually and in ministry settings.  We love life and being together!

Your hobbies, other interests
I love to read, swim, be outside when the weather in warm, gather with others for food/conversation, play with my grandnieces and nephew.

Sister Victoria Ann Lichtenauer

Joined the SCLs:  1996

What/who influenced you to become an SCL? 
Both my family and friends were very influential. My family taught me about love of neighbor and the beauty of volunteer service at a very young age.


Ministries you've loved   
Working as a campus minister both at the University of Kansas and at Cristo Rey Kansas City High School. It is a delight to journey with young people as they explore and deepen their relationship with God and self-knowledge.


What's special about being a Sister of Charity?   
We are a group of women that walk the walk and talk the talk. We take our vows seriously as we strive to be aware of and involved in our local and global world.  We use our individual and communal talents and resources to try to bring light to this world. 


Your hobbies, other interests
I enjoy being outside, water sports, quilting, spending time with my nieces and nephews, and just being silly and laughing with my friends.

Sister Donna Lynn Casey

Joined the SCLs:  1956

What/who influenced you to become an SCL? 
At Cathedral High School, Helena, Mont., I met Sister Mary Dolorita Flynn who assisted me in enrolling at Saint Mary College (now the University of Saint Mary, Leavenworth, Kan.), and I became more aware of my vocation through my work and study at Saint Mary.


Ministries you've loved   
I've loved education, both teaching and working with faculty as a principal. My work in health care leadership was so compelling, challenging and growth-filled as I learned the many aspects of providing a healing presence, reflective of Gospel values as taught by Christ, to our physicians, staff and patients/families. Now as a chancellor for the Diocese of Great Falls-Billings, Mont., I find the challenges of leadership in the Catholic Church in these times requires a prophetic voice; a prayerful, discerning and encouraging support to those in parish ministry; and an opportunity to live the consecrated life more fully in faith.


What's special about being a Sister of Charity?   
Being an SCL has provided the support and challenge of other SCLs to discover Christ in ever new and unknown faces and places. My intentional community of SCLs, even when living alone, has been part of an intentional community to be connected in service, support and prayer.


Your hobbies, other interests
I love watercolor painting and enjoy music.
