Sister Jessica Kerber on Discerning Religious Life


“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:
