I am NRVC: Sister Christopher Marie Wagner, O.S.F.


What roles do you play in vocation ministry?

I'm located in Aston, Pennsylvania and I'm one of two vocation promoters for Sisters of St. Francis of Philadelphia. Also I'm currently co-coordinator of the NRVC Delaware Valley member area.

How long have you been in vocation work?

Three years.

What's your favorite part of the ministry?

I enjoy meeting young women and men who are curious about religious life and are considering it as a possibility for their life.

Has belonging to NRVC been helpful?

Yes, being an active member of NRVC has been a great support since I began this ministry. The members in my area have been so encouraging and helpful as we share our experiences at our meetings, in phone conversations, and by working together on group-sponsored events and in peer supervision. Their enthusiasm and energy are contagious and carry me through the challenging times. Also the NRVC Convocations in 2014 and 2016 have opened up a wealth of resources that address issues in vocation ministry.

What has been your best vocation effort so far?

My best vocation effort has been working with our community vocation committee, a group of dedicated sisters who live on both the East and the West Coast. The work we have created for our congregation fits into our chapter directives of 2014, and our efforts are bearing fruit in a growing awareness of the need for individual ownership of the vocation endeavor.
