Emboldened by faith and serving with joy, the Dominican Sisters~Grand Rapids are blessed to announce that Morgan Bengel is a Candidate to become a member of our Congregation.

Morgan Bengel 2018“I began to sense God calling me. I was sitting in Mass one day during my junior year of high school. I do not remember what the sermon was about, nor the songs we sang, but I do remember that I felt this unexplainable pull somewhere deep inside me. I remember not understanding why, but knowing that I was being called to be a sister. It’s as though God just put this neatly packaged idea right inside the walls in my head.

What does it mean to become a Candidate? It is a time of entrance and initial formation intended to help Morgan and the Congregation further discern Morgan’s call to religious life as a Grand Rapids Dominican Sister. It is a time of much growth and opportunity. Please join us in holding Morgan in prayer.
