Was there any specific event, in your life or in the world, that helped define you?
As a college student, I participated in an international gathering of Catholics in 1976 that included some of the Church's most outspoken advocates for justice, peace, and compassion: Mother Teresa, Dorothy Day, Brazilian bishop Dom Helder Camara, and others. The latter gave me a clear direction for my faith and my life as a Sister of Mercy.
As you look ahead, what would you like to achieve?
I look forward to being part of a country and a world where homelessness is a thing of the past.
