WATCH: What makes a young woman enter a convent?

Dominican Sister Maris Stella tells her story

Sister Maris Stella used to have a comfortable life… a loving family, lots of friends, a boyfriend in college. When she began to question whether she was living for One who made her, she remembered something from her childhood… the example her mother gave her of personal, hidden prayer. In this Ascension Press video, Sister Maris Stella tells the story of how she found her vocation with the Dominican Sisters of St. Cecilia in Nashville and how becoming a sister has been the greatest adventure of her life.
