“It is important to me to be aware of the poor, the vulnerable, especially those in our midst, and to respond with generosity,” says Sister Catherine who has worked as a principal, caregiver, medical social worker, hospice chaplain and spiritual director.
Sister Catherine serves as Director of Ignatian Spirituality and Minister of Member Wellbeing for the Congregation. She has ministered at St. Joseph Spirituality Center, Jesuit Collaborative in Pittsburgh, Pneuma Institute at the Pittsburgh Theological Center, and Washington, Good Samaritan and Celtic Hospices. She also was principal of St. James in Sewickley (1998-2002) and St. John the Evangelist (1980-1994) in Uniontown.
Faithful, committed and compassionate, Sister Catherine has wide-ranging experience in companioning people on their journey to God by providing support to both individuals and groups, especially in the context of the Spiritual Exercises.
“The call to all-inclusive love, to love as God loves, the call to forgive and ask forgiveness without limits, or, in other words, to embody the project of Christ, is most important to me,” she says.
Formerly Director of Formation, Sister Catherine says, from early childhood, she had “a deep longing for a personal relationship with Jesus,” which was nurtured in first grade by Sister Devota Dietz, CSJ.
