What does it mean to "live in the world, but not of it" not just spiritually, but literally?
Vowed religious men and women who live in community apart from the rest of the world have a very unique perspective on how theology and the physical space/built environment shape each other.
Join us for a discussion with Sister Ignatia from the Sisters of St Francis of Perpetual Adoration as she shares her perspective of living in community in a convent that is "in the world but not of it" and how her vocation intersects with place through prayer, charism, and mission. RSVP here to ensure we get enough food for you!
Sister Ignatia grew up in Central New York. She met the Sisters while studying at Franciscan University of Steubenville and began falling in love with Jesus in the Blessed Sacrament. She entered the Sisters of St. Francis of Perpetual Adoration in 2010 after her sophomore year and professed her final vows in 2018. After completing her undergraduate degree in theology, business, and German, Sister Ignatia served in campus ministry at the University of Saint Francis in Fort Wayne, Indiana for four years. She currently serves as the Vocation Director for the community and lives at the Motherhouse in Mishawaka, Indiana.
The Sisters of St Francis of Perpetual Adoration live their mission in healthcare and education in addition to perpetually adoring Christ. Learn more about them here.
