Including Massage Therapy Sister Juliana Djo, SPC Hometown: South Korea Current ministry: Pastoral ministry Ministry highlight: Daily there is new movement in my ministry toward the vision of respecting the human digni- ty of each person and to embrace the persons journey. I vis- it the elderly who do not fo to Church and those who are liv- ing in nursing centers.

Ministry highlight: I try to visit all of the resi- dents daily. One of them said to me, your presence is blessing to all of us here. You have a great respect for all of us. You see us in a dif- ferent way. You changed this place brightly. I feel that all residents expect to be respect- ed from others and not only be assisted with their needs. Sister Gloria Schultz, SPC Hometown: Bessemer, Mich. Current ministry: District Superior Ministry highlight: One thing that I love about being a woman religious are the countless occasions when others reach out to me for help or guidance. One specific time was when I was in Washington, D.C. and a girl told me she was contem- plating suicide. She asked me to share what helps me so I talked about life having value no matter what is going on and that God has a purpose for us even if we feel our life is not of value. I also mentioned redemptive suffering. With the help of the Holy Spirit, she found comfort in redemptive suffering and thought it would help with what was going on in her life. Sister Norma Vincentillo, SPC Hometown: Palompon, Leyte; Philippines Current ministry: Pastoral work at Divine Infant Living Center and pastoral visits to Gogebic Care Facility. Ministry highlight: Being in the presence of Father Louis Brack- et at Divine Infant Living Center. He always edifies me by his simple down to earth homilies and reflection. Sometimes his own struggles and difficulties come out and his strong trust and confidence to surrender to the will of God. We are so blessed to be able to serve a saintly priest like Father Bracket. School Sisters of Notre Dame The mission of the School Sisters of Notre Dame, is, as their name suggests, centered on education. These sisters direct their entire lives toward that oneness for which Jesus Christ was sent. Sister Frances "Fran" Buechell, SSND Hometown: Detroit, Mich.
