I remain truly grateful for the family, friends, and strangers who helped support me with their prayers and financial contributions.
In 2007, an article entitled Debt, the Vocation Killer appeared in the National Catholic Register highlighting the vocational challenges many young people face because of their (educational) debt. A .pdf of the article, reprinted with permission, is available HERE. Please also consider reading J.D. Long-Garcia’s 2011 article from U.S. Catholic entitled “Admission deferred: Modern barriers to vocations.” J.D. interviewed many young religious, myself included, in researching the implications debt has on delaying vocations.
If you feel called, please consider donating to the following organizations who help eradicate the debt of young men and women so they can enter religious life. I have numerous friends who have benefited from these fine organizations.
If you’re interested in making a donation directly to “my” sisters (the Apostles of the Sacred Heart of Jesus), you can do so on our website.
