Angela Conti, BSW, works in the Social Services office for the Little Sisters of the Poor at St. Martin’s Home. In her blog, Angela states, “There isn’t really anything special about me. I am just like you. I feel joy. I feel pain. I sometimes snort when I laugh. I am not graceful. I frequently knock things over. Smiling’s my favorite. I love a good pun and you can always rely on me to laugh at your jokes.” There is, however, something very special about her – Angela has a vocation and her desire is to become a Little Sister of the Poor and work with the needy elderly.
Because the Little Sisters don’t make an income and they take a vow of poverty, Angela cannot enter the order with debt. With a degree in social work from Saint Francis University, Angela must pay off $100,000 in student loans in order to enter the Little Sisters in October, 2015.
An anonymous donor has offered to match dollar for dollar whatever funds Angela can raise to pay off her college loans. Please help Angela in her steps to become a religious sister!
