Sister Martha Keller, director of vocation ministry for the Ursuline Sisters of Mount Saint Joseph, spoke to students from St. John the Baptist School in Newburgh, Ind., on Jan. 14, 2013.
Sister Martha was invited by the school to come and share her vocation story during National Vocation Awareness Week, which is being celebrated by the Catholic Church in the United States Jan. 13-19.
“In the final day of the beautiful Christmas decorations, the students from grades 5-8, 150 in total, attentively listened with enthusiasm and joy and raised wonderful questions about what being an Ursuline Sister means,” Sister Martha said.
Sister Martha said that it was appropriate for the Church to celebrate Vocation Awareness week following the feast of the Baptism of the Lord.
“I was struck that I was in John the Baptist Church and he was the one who baptized Jesus, so I spoke about how our call flows from our baptism,” she said.
