“The draw to religious life is more than community, says Sr. Jessica Kerber, director of the retreat center of the Handmaids of the Sacred Heart of Jesus: ‘It’s finding that at that deepest level of self, there is this desire to give fully to God one’s own being. . . . It’s a commitment to God and God’s project, the project of salvation.”

Sister Jessica Kerber was recently interviewed by Dan Stockman for the November 29th publication of Global Sisters Report, a project of the National Catholic Reporter. To read what she has to say about the discernment experience, process, and discovery, please follow this link:
