Here are a few photos of her beautiful profession day and a poem written by Sr. Helen which describes her experience of God calling to her soul.



God Calls to Our Souls


God calls to our souls as we journey.

He calls to us in different ways.

In the magnitude of the mountains and waves.

In the miniscule hermit crab and bee.


God calls to our souls as we journey,

To see and hear His creation,

to show us His power and His gentleness,

in the world and in our lives.


God calls to our souls as we journey,

to our being – mind, soul and body all one,

to listen and hear His words spoken,

in sights and sounds of our world today.


God calls to our souls as we journey

as we travel through life on His way,

to listen, hear, look and see

to be open to Him each day.


God calls to our souls as we journey

to be open to Him and His promptings

to be willing to say “yes” to His leadings,

to be open to His will in our lives.


God calls to my soul as I journey

to be open to Him this day

to accept and open the gifts He has given

and use them in my being today.


God calls to my soul as I journey

To follow His lead, on His way

In the calms and the storm I will journey

for He is beside me, Lord show me your way.
