A passion for people keeps Sister Bernadette going

Email

Sister Bernadette likes to say that she got her vocation on the way to the chicken coop.

It was on a Sunday afternoon 70 years ago that her mother asked her if she wanted to be a nun as they walked to the henhouse to collect eggs.

"And I said, oh yes," Sister Bernadette recalls. "That finalized it and we started moving ahead."

She was 13 years old. The country was in the depths of the Great Depression.
