Sister Shawna Foley, PBVM
Like many of us, Sister Shawna found herself in her mid-twenties searching for her life calling. Yet, her strength and courage led her right where she was supposed to end up. She let God guide her, and after much discernment and living with different orders of sisters, she found what she called "home" with the Union of Sisters of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary. Since then she has done numerous ministries including working in hospitals, prisons, vocation work, working with youth and many others that have positively influenced the lives of more people than she will ever know. Now, Sr. Shawna lives in a community of Presentation Sisters in Fargo, ND with her furry companion, Candy.
The tail wagging, an occasional bark and looks of pure love that come from Candy, never fail to bring a smile to the sisters. Sr. Shawna has also found that Candy is pet therapy not only for herself, but all the sisters in the community.
