/ -- Franciscan Sisters of Christian Charity invite discerning young adult women to visit their Franciscan News Page to watch part one of a special Discernment Journey Podcast www.fscc-calledtobe.org
The two part program documents Michigan native Sr. Pamela Catherine Peasel's prayerful response to God's calling her to be a Franciscan Sister. It follows her through the arc of her discernment from her 2007 discernment retreat, though formation as a postulant, novice and temporary professed sister... to her recent Profession of Perpetual Vows, and her current ministry as a teacher at St. Peter's Mission School on the Gila River Reservation.
Throughout, she candidly discusses deeply personal and profound questions that also reflect the more universal challenge of discernment. "For anyone beginning the discernment process, I encourage them definitely to continue to pray and go to the Lord in prayer." said Sr. Pamela Catherine. "Don't be afraid of your questions. Questions are good: it means you are searching. There will be answers that will come as long as you continue to trust in where He is leading you at this time in your life."
"The people I serve here are the Gila River people, from the T'ohono O'dham tribe. One characteristic is that they are a people of joy. There's an inner strength to the people here that's inspiring they're very proud of their heritage, where they've come from."
