Sister Mary Concetta Medina
Entered: September 5, 1943 - Council Bluffs, Iowa
Current Ministry: Ministry of Prayer
Many years ago, and without my being aware of it, God planted within me a vocation to become a Sister of Mercy. Now as I prepare to celebrate my 75th Jubilee, I recall the first time that I even thought of entering the convent. Up until then I had been busy teaching school and enjoying life as a single woman. Sister Marita, a high school teacher of mine, said, "Ramona (my baptismal name) if you intend to enter the convent you had better do so now." This was God's way of awakening me to His call.
I was born and raised in San Luis, Colorado, the oldest town in Colorado. The people living there were very religious and so I grew up loving to go to church and practice my faith. It was there that I would see Sisters of Mercy having fun jumping rope and enjoying life. They taught me not only how to pray but also to play. After all these years, I realize that I could not have made a better choice. I am grateful to God for my vocation and to all the people who have helped me to live it out!
