Sister Susan Davy: Celebrating her 25th Jubilee
When I entered I believed that my vocation was truly God’s call and gift and I have an even greater conviction of that today
It’s a bit amazing to me that I am a Jubilarian as the past 25 years seem to have flown by. Upon reflection, I remember these years as graced-filled, challenging and life-giving. Back in the mid-1980’s, after many happy years in the hospitality field, I felt a persistent longing for a deeper relationship with God. As I moved over time with the stirrings in my heart, I found myself discerning a religious vocation. I wanted to make a difference in the world and to live in a community with women who shared my desire to love and serve God and God’s people.
When I entered the Novitiate in 1989, I felt a deep attraction to share the charism and to live out my vocational call as a Sister of St. Joseph. Then I had no idea of how the years ahead would actually unfold. Today, I have a lived sense of belonging to a congregation of prayerful, faithful women, in love with God and focused on bringing God’s unifying, loving presence to the dear neighbour and the needs of our world.
I have deep gratitude for the wonderful opportunities and ministries that I have experienced throughout the 25 years. When I entered I believed that my vocation was truly God’s call and gift and I have an even greater conviction of that today. I am eager to continue the journey with the One who continues to call me into the fullness of life as a Sister of St. Joseph.
