Encourage our Vocation Director:
Sister Denise Glazik, OP

Sister Denise Glazik, OP, is our new vocation director!

We’ll share more about her soon, but for now, we invite our friends to encourage her as she prepares for this new and important ministry. This month she is at Catholic Theological Union, Chicago, participating in the National Religious Vocation Conference’s 2019 Summer Institute.

Sister Denise is an experienced pastoral minister who served most recently for 18 years as pastoral associate, St. Joseph Parish, Bradley, Ill. The Summer Institute allows her to update her understanding of  church law, ethics, and the spiritual accompaniment of young adults as they discern their vocation to religious life.

To encourage Sister Denise as she studies, please leave her a message in the comment box below!
