Welcome to our vocation page!

Is not life with God amazing!  We never quite know what he has in store for us.  And once we think we have it all figured out, he seems to go and change the plan!  But, his plan is always so much better than we could remotely come up with for ourselves.  I encourage you to "be not afraid" of the plan he has for you but to eagerly embrace it.  For when we embrace God and his plan for us it is then that we find true holiness and happiness.

I hope these pages and links are helpful to you in your discernment.  If there is anything I can do to assist you, if you have questions or want to visit, please contact me.  I'd be happy to help in any way I can.  You can reach me by email at [email protected] or by phone at 309-674-6168

God's blessings on your discernment,

Sr. Diane Marie VandeVoorde, O.S. F.
