Sister Caryn Crook – The Year of Consecrated Life
The Year of Consecrated Life has begun in the worldwide Church.
It started on Nov. 29, 2014 and will end on Feb. 2, 2016. The Church sets this time aside to become more aware of the gift that consecrated life is to the Church, and to awaken awareness of the call of God to individuals to give themselves totally to God’s service as vowed members of the Church. Consecrated life is a GIFT because those who take vows promise God that they will serve God and God’s people in their need. Because so many people do not even know what consecrated life is, people in dioceses the world over are sharing the stories of communities and individuals so that others can better understand this call of God to individuals. Sister Caryn Crook is a member of the Sisters of St. Francis of the Neumann Communities, the same community that has served Saint Francis School for over 90 years. As the Vocation Director, she goes around to the different geographical areas where our Sisters serve, and tries to help women to figure out what God is calling them to be in their lives: married, single, religious. Let’s take a look at this interview by our video production stduents with Sister Caryn that talks about what Sister does and why she’s here in the Islands for a short time.
