The second Associates & Sisters Coffee Conversations featured Sr. Mary Bordelon as our guest speaker. Associates Leah Alviar, Minerva Hernandez, Esther P. Harris, Patty Stoltz, Cyndi Trevino, and Ana Maria De La Portilla, along with Sr. Lourdes Leal, enjoyed Sr. Mary’s story of “hearing the call” at the age of 16. Soon she found herself at Our Lady of the Lake majoring in religious studies. Her ministry has taken her to Louisiana, Georgia, Kentucky, Beaumont, TX, and Mexico, many times serving the poorest of the poor. When asked what was one of the most memorable parts of her journey –from affiliate to novitiate to now – she states that meeting and working with a variety of people from various cultures stands out for her. Sr. Mary is currently with Mobile Ministry where she and Sr. Virginia Huser present retreats and workshops to all age groups AND they welcome Associates to join them.
