St. Joseph brings a New Postulant

Yesterday, right before First Vespers of the Solemnity of St. Joseph, Danielle Brisebois, 24, entered the enclosure to begin her postulancy. DSC_7544

Sr. Danielle is the youngest of four children and grew up in Massachusetts. She graduated from Ave Maria University with a degree in history. Prior to entering the monastery, sister worked at her family's catering business as she began paying off her student loans.

Student loan debt is the #1 obstacle facing aspirants to religious life today. Thankfully, Sr. Danielle received a St. Joseph grant from the Mater Ecclesiae Fund for Vocations, making it possible for her to enter immediately! These grants make it possible for men and women with student loan debt to pursue their vocations in religious life. Sr. Danielle is the third sister in our community to receive a grant from MEFV.


Please keep Sr. Danielle in your prayers as she begins her religious life!
