This section of the Vocations Ireland website offers stories of those who discerned their vocation and answered God's call. We hope you'll find it will be both informative and inspiring. We are always looking out for vocation stories to add to this section and will add new ones on a regular basis. If you you know a person in the Religious life who has inspired you, perhaps suggest to them to offer their story here.
Sr. Monica Whelan
Little Company of Mary Australia
"After encountering a Little Company of Mary Sister, I was drawn further to seek and understand its charism. It was then after meeting with other Little Company of Mary Sisters that I was able to finally give my 'Yes' to that same call to pray for the sick and dying. A variety of life's experiences, reflective of my own and others' suffering, challenged me to question the restlessness within myself. There is great fulfillment in answering this call and being a Sister of the Little Company of Mary. This journey gives me great joy, peace and happiness amongst all the chaos of everyday living. The Spirituality of the Sisters of the Little Company of Mary enables me to be with those in need and be a greater part of the healing ministry of Jesus Christ. The essence of being called to live a life of prayer enables me to continue to spread the Good News as Mary did for her dying Son on Calvary."<< Back to list page - Email this Page
