I am NRVC: Sister Nicole Trahan, F.M.I.


Sister Nicole Trahan, F.M.I. serves as vocations and pre-novitiate director for her community, the Marianist Sisters. She is also a member of the NRVC board and a contributor to HORIZON.

How long have you been involved in vocation ministry?

Unofficially since 2008, but officially since 2013. 

Are you part of a team? If so, tell us how you're organized.

I am part of a team consisting of our Marianist brothers and a few of our sisters. My counterpart in the brothers and I meet often to discuss programming and events, and we ask for assistance as needed.

Has being a member of NRVC been helpful?

Being part of NRVC has been invaluable. The training and formation, especially as a new director, helped me gain footing and set goals. The relationships formed through NRVC are supportive and enriching. I could not do this ministry without NRVC.

What approach have you used lately that you have been excited about?

My local community is within walking distance of a Marianist university. We hosted two "get to know you" cookouts this past academic year for students and area Marianists (sisters, brothers, and priests). Our focus right now is re-establishing relationships, and the cookouts worked really well!

When you were a child, what did you want to be when you grew up?

When I was really young I imagined being on Broadway in musical theater.

Would you share a fun fact with us?

I have terrible stage fright—which is funny considering my childhood dream!
