Meet Sister Maria Gracia

11-12-2017The Sisters Corner

Greetings to all of the Our Lady of Mount Carmel parishioners! My name is Sister Maria Gracia. Sister Alejandra and I arrived on Friday, the 27th of October in Phoenix.  It is a blessing for us to finally be here with all of you. Thank you for your warm welcome, generosity, and hospitality; we feel like we’re home already!

Here’s a little bit about myself: I was born and raised in Lima, Peru, and I am 24 years old. I enjoy reading the lives of the saints and science fiction novels, as well as playing all sorts of games (especially board games and Frisbee), baking and playing the guitar.

I entered the community of the Servants of the Plan of God in 2015, and I am deeply grateful to God for my vocation, my sisters, and our mission. I heard God’s calling to consecrated life a couple of years after my First Communion, when I realized Jesus was calling me to be close friends with Him - forever. And later on during my last year of high school, when I started serving the children at a hospital and at a shelter. It was Jesus’ invitation to love and serve Him in the poor and needy that drove me to follow Him and give Him my whole life.

I look forward to sharing many experiences in the Lord with you, and getting to know you more!
