Cedar Rapids, IA
I’ve spent the past few years in social ministry: first as a social worker with the Jesuit Volunteer Corps in Belize, then as a food pantry coordinator and a caregiver with people who have Alzheimer’s.
Christin is both helping our Congregation to actualize our own commitment to Care of Earth and expanding our environmental outreach at Sinsinawa. She is a member of the Westknoll Community at Sinsinawa.
Jogging, biking, swimming, hiking, camping, gardening (and anything else that takes me outdoors!), making music with others, reading, and learning about / being involved in social and environmental justice work.
What attracted me to this community
I was totally drawn in by the deep JOY of the Sisters, as well as their commitment to justice and lifelong learning, their prayerful way of living community, and their diversity. I love the saying “If you’ve met one Sinsinawa Dominican, you’ve met one Sinsinawa Dominican.” How true! I’ve been embraced just as I am, and yet I’m called to grow with the Sisters to become something more—to become my fullest self. What a gift!
