These years in Chicago I am far away from my CSJP sisters. But I have lots of Giving Voice sisters in town, peers in religious life. One of my goals of this time here is to take advantage of this geographic proximity and hang out with my young nun friends.
My friend Sarah, a Franciscan sister and a giving voice sister who is also going to CTU lives on the same floor as I do here in the dorm. Tonight we hosted a young nun dinner party. We had eight sisters from seven religious communities. I made some new friends and caught up with others. I am so grateful for the gift of community in all its forms.
The only problem is that cooking took priority over studying today. Tomorrow is going to include lots of reading!!
