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.

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.

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.
