As a Dominican Sister, study is important to me. Study is not to be hoarded for personal esteem or prestige. Its fruits are meant to be shared with others. I am a student at the Oblate School of Theology in San Antonio, TX. I love my studies and I find they are providing me the knowledge and understanding to be able to minister and share the Truth more fully. Studying Theology has been a blessing for me. Many times, I feel like a child, learning new things for the first time. I have grown in new awareness of the Old Testament, the early Theologians, Church history and Faith and Revelation. Currently I am in awe of Proclamation of the Word and the Theology of the Church. My days consist of reading, reading and more reading with writing as well. I am slow reader and struggle with writing, so I’m pretty busy with my studies. I enjoy my faith community at Oblate consisting of students, faculty and staff. The majority of my student peers are seminarians with a few men religious and few lay women. We celebrate Liturgy together, followed by lunch every Tuesday. I enjoy the fellowship time outside of our classes. We are all journeying together learning to bring forth the Gospel to others.
